State Highway 178
The posted speed limit is 55 MPH on State Highway 178 on eihter side of this town. As you enter the town the limit drops to 35 MPH and there are no notifications that there is a speed reduction. Since the town is only aboout 4-6 blocks in width, is is easy for the city "officer" to "enforce" this speed limit. In many cases, he will pull out on the highway in the opposite direction of your travel, and even before you get the speed limit post he hits his lights, makes a u-turn and stops you. You will be ticketed for 50/35 as you attempt to comply with the speed limit posted. The fine is a standard $85.00 IF the officer decides to let you go with just a ticket.
This is a well known speed trap among most of the residence of northern Arkansas, including the county and circuit judges of the area.
This is really a shame since the Lakeview area is a nice area and just ripe for development as it sits on the southeast shores of Bull Shores Lake.
My advice, If you are heading to Bull Shores Lake – beware.
