About 1 mile after you enter the town, going north on US 411.

US 411, Polk County

Benton, TennesseeSep 01, 20002 Comments

Benton is a notorious speed trap that has flourished for years. It has received less attention in recent years only because I-75 has taken much traffic off US 411, which is the main drag through this little town of about 2,000. I feel sorry for any resident of Benton who actually needs law enforcement assistance, because all the Benton police do is run the speed trap targeting anybody who goes through town on 411 with an out of state tag. The mayor’s wife, who is not a lawyer, is the kangaroo court judge. The police are not required to lock in the radar reading and show it to the victim, which leaves them free to make up any number they please when they issue a citation to an out of state victim who is unlikely to waste his time coming back to fight a ticket in a rigged kangaroo court that does nothing but rubber stamp what the police do. The speed limit through town is 35. I was doing 30 and got cited for 51 only because I had Maryland tags on my truck. Tickets are rarely issued to local residents, and the kangaroo court routinely dismisses cases against local residents while anybody who is not a local resident is automatically guilty.
