overpass on Hwy 165 northbound, coming out of town
The speed limit goes up and down all through this town (talk about a set-up!). It goes up to 65 as you’re going out of town but drops to 45 just before going over the last overpass out of town. The speed limit sign is easy to miss, given the psychological though that you’re on your way out of town so 65 seems likely henceforth. There’s a police car JUST over the pass waiting, radaring!
The joke of it all, the speed limit goes back up to 65 about 500 meters past the overpass!! I could see it as the officer was writing my ticket!! I pointed it out to him and he couldn’t have cared less. Absolute entrapment! I got hit for $215 – 62 (under the previous speed limit less than a half mile back) in a 45.
And the only "deferred adjudication" the town offers is "it won’t go on your insurance. It will be a non-moving violation". You still have to pay the full fine regardless. Our legislatures are really dropping the ball here!
