Just be careful and watch all speed limit signs!!
Speed limits are posted prior to arriving at the town limits, but are relatively close together. From 55 to 45 to 35. One would have to brake pretty effectively, no coasting. The town limits are located past a right curve and one has no idea they are there.
When I got stopped, the police officier was already waiting for me when I came around the curve, he must have clocked me through the bushes. 51 mph in a 35 mph zone. Again, I didn’t see the signs and neither did my passenger.
$150.00 fine and 4 points or the "bribe" of $290.00 and no points. I really got hacked off at the "bribe". To me it’s as if the town’s main revenue is the speeding tickets.
Just wish the town would identify themselves a little sooner than after the curve. I’m not accustomed to speeding through these little towns because I admire the older homes and downtown buildings. This is the first speeding ticket I’ve gotten in over 30 years.
