US 75 southbound

Hinton, IowaJun 30, 20030 Comments

The southbound speed limit on 75 leaving Hinton. Nothing but a good-old-fashioned-speed-trap. I know it’s there, but the poor unsuspecting out-of-area drivers don’t. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel for the Hinton Police Department.
It is totally inconsistant with the speed limit signing anywhere else on 75 between Sioux City & Le Mars. Everywhere else, as soon as you have the full divided highway with the ditch, it resumes to 65. It totally violates driver expectancy and is incosistant – 2 of the needs of any traffic control device. It’s probably because to the well-to-do neighborhood south of Hinton.
