Cookeville, Tennessee Speed Traps
The speed limit is 30 mph, even west of Franklin Avenue. The speed limit is ridiculously low there; a car could safely travel 35 or 40 mph on such a well-built road with few driveways and intersections. This shortcut isn’t actually any slower than sticking to Broad Street and North Willow Avenue, so it’s easy to question whether the road department has ulterior motives up their sleeve.
Highway 111 runs from Kentucky to almost Chattanooga in Central Tennessee. Speed limit is 65-70 but is often only 45/55 for short stretches. State Troopers and local law enforcement love this highway.
Cookeville Police Dept. has Issued Over 300 Tickets in the last 2 weeks.
For Speeding, MoveOver Law, Drivers Beware.
Patrol car sits way back off the road just before Poe’s Dinner Bell, going towards 111. Speed drops from 40 to 30 with no warning! New school to open soon here, so this will be a 15 mph zone next school year for sure.
watch out coming over the slight hills
