The police sit in the St. Mary’s church parking lot and also at the Friendship gas station on the outskirts of town.
If you get pulled and you are not speeding; stand your ground! I have done this (and since I have a radar detector & a CDL) I point-blank told the offocer he was a liar. My detector never went off, there was lots of traffic and he couldn’t know for sure who *thought* he got on radar (he never used it and he was “busted”). No ticket was issued. If I am guilty I will take my lumps. If not, I stand my ground.
Years ago they even wanted to physically keep my driver’s license. They said I was a “non-resident.” I asked what they were talking about. I live in the same (Huron) county that Wakeman is located in and and am a resident of Ohio. What more do they want from me? Must I also live in Wakeman?? I stated that I was on my way to Cleveland and would need his phone number so he could be available all night to verify who I was and of legal drinking age so I could be served adult beverages, since he was planning on keeping my license. He relented at that and gave my license back to me. He did issue a ticket and I paid the speed violation as I was guilty.
