State Highway 79

Clarksville, TennesseeJun 09, 20082 Comments

55 MPH zone .. from Clarksville, to Dover Tennessee. $ Lane divided, limited acess Highway. Sheriff pulled me over when there was no traffic, I thought I was doing 62 MPH, he said I was going 65 … I was driving my father in law’s car .. new Pontiac Sedan. As I topped a small hill, it looked as if the speed limit would have continued to increase to the normal 65 for a hwy of this quallity, and being as rural an area, but the speed limit was a constant 55 till you got to Dover ..Newly completed road … obviously an attempt to "cash in on people who are not familliar with the posted speed of this highway. $178.00
The first ticket I’ve had in 28 years … SUX!

There is still construction going on on this road when it is all finshed in a couple of years the speed limit will more than lickley be raised.

I have to agree this is a speed crap, my sister and nephew came to visit me two separate times and they both got tickets on the same stretch of highway almost in the exact same area
