Traveling South before RH turn in Lake Providence LA
I was traveling on state Hwy 65 heading south through town. I’d just left a convenience store just outside of town by about 1/4 mile. I was in no hurry and felt like I was easing through town at appropriate speed. I was preparing to take a RH turn at the downtown turn, and a policeman popped his lights on.
I assumed it was for the car in front of me (a local) who was definitely speeding. Instead, he pulled up behind me. (Surprise, surprise) a Ga tag. He had no courtesy at all… not nice. He summarily issued me a ticket for 37 in a 25 (which I seriously doubt) and for expired insurance (which they know you have if they run your tag). I called in Monday morning and they did remove the insurance citation when I sent the insurance proof in. The ticket was $211 (OUTRAGEOUS).
Hamburg Arkansas is my home time. I travel through here regularly.
I always stopped at the Hot Sauce factory outside of town and spend about $200 per visit. I always eat at the Crawfish restaurant as I travel through. No more. I won’t drop a penny there from now on. Thanks Lake Providence.
