Motorcycle . Speed limit suddenly drops from 70 MPH to 55 MPH. Municiple law enforcement
Officer sits at bottom of hill, and gets you for rolling down hill too fast. Trees obscure the bottom until you are at the steepest part of the downhill. Your foot is on the brake the whole way down, but if you do not brake enough, as you slow to make the turn at the bottom of the hill the officer will pull out to pull you over. 30 MPH zone. I was talking to a neighbor after getting a ticket, and she said she got one in the same place in the last year. Never thought my first speeding ticket would be for rolling downhill too fast.
Policeman stationed at the top of the hill in front of Cheddar’s restaurant with a (new type) LIDAR gun pointing back down the hill toward the post office. He is difficult to see because the sun is directly in the eyes of the oncoming traffic in the morning. This same stretch of road is also infested with numerous traffic cameras.
Officers in car on Rambling Rd backed far enough so very difficult to see while traveling on Bradshaw Garden. Good place to sit. Have to admit it is needed in the area due to cars traveling fast on Bradshaw Garden
