Ohio State Rt. 41

North Hampton, OhioApr 20, 20142 Comments

55 to 35 mph. opoosite ends of town. The road is fairly wide for the village and tends to mislead drivers as to a village or need for a 35 mph speed limit. Officers sit on the sides in vacant or business lots directly after the speed reduction. Was sited for 11 mph over. I waved at the officer as I went by. I thought I was driving at an appropriate clip for the loacation I was in. I have a CDL and drive a truck an often gauge my speed by the feel of an area. Traffic flow, road size, congestion, traffic lights and amount of homes vs. Business often play into my speed. Apparently I was way off on this one. First ticket is 11 years and over a million miles safe driving. Didnt seem to effect this officers need to make that money. There was nobody in sight on a lazy Good Friday Afternoon and obviously not a "safety" issue..

This village in Clark County Ohio is infamous for operating a speed trap. It is very disappointing the Sate of Ohio allows this behavior to continue from otherwise respectable police officers. The Republican controlled legislature should intervene and demonstrate they are committed to keeping government intrusion in check.

I didn't see a speed limit sign for 35 mph either. i assumed it was at least 45 and the officer said he clocked me at 46. My first ticket in 15yrs. it is defiantly a speed trap!
