Northbound feeder road of Hwy. 146, approaching Spencer Hwy.

If you are thinking all frontage/feeder roads are 50 mph. – they’re not, apparently. According to the officer who stopped me, I was doing 51. I agreed, thinking what’s 1 mile over the speed limit? I’m keeping with the flow of traffic. I was told by the officer the speed limit is 40 mph. But everyone else was faster and in front of me. I asked why I was stopped, and the officer said you’re the one the radar picked up, after I had turned from a side street onto Hwy. 146. I stated I hadn’t turned off of a side street at all. I had been traveling on the feeder road all the way from Fairmont. So how many people are stopped here thinking that traveling between 40 and 50 mph is ok? I would guess a lot. According to the site, “Speed limits on frontage roads generally range from 50-60 mph in rural areas to 40-50 mph in urban areas.” So it is flexible, depending on who stops you?? How is there a range anyway? If you’re on the high end of the range, you’re just screwed……
