Fayetteville, Tennessee Speed Traps
Driving East into Fayetteville on Interstate 64, the speed limit drops from 65 then to 60 then to 50. The 50 mph speed limit sign is at the bottom of a steep hill. As you crest over the hill, there is often a State trooper on the other side. Most folks haven’t slowed down all the way from 65 to 50. I have seen the trooper simply turn on his lights as people crest the hill, and not even have to chase a vehicle!
speed drops from 55 to 40 to 35 to 15 all in less than a mile
Eastbound on US 64 at Mile Marker 14 (4-lane) to the west of Fayetteville, TN the speed limit decreases from 60 mph to 50 mph about 5 miles outside of town. There are no schools or industry, absolutely nothing to indicate a need to reduce speed for safety. Trooper sits at bottom of hill and gets people cresting that hill.
Numerous complaints from persons working in AL and driving back to TN each day. Speed limit drops from 65MPH to 55MPH in open rural area on 4 lane highway. $165 for 10 mph over limit. No warnings. Appears to be an extortative method to make up tax short falls. Completely unrealistic and contributes nothing to vehicle safety.
