Milan, Tennessee Speed Traps
after you leave the 30 MPH zone thru town, you hit this 35 MPH for about 2 miles and this is where they get you. It should be 45 MPH like the North side of Milan but all the big money is on the South side (druggist, lawyers, etc). They especially prey on old folks in older vehicles. You never ever see a young person in a shiny new $50,000 truck pulled over. You can be passed by a newer vehicle doing 55 and they will pull you over for 46 MPH. I see it all the time as I have to go that way to and from work in Jackson since all the industry and jobs have all but died in Milan. Definitely a speed trap . Some cops give you a few miles over and some don’t. And they all look like NAZI skinheads, you can’t tell one from another.
Posted Speed Limit is different on one side of the road than the other. Leaving Town it goes up to 45mph from 30mph while the drop to 30mph on the south bound side is a mile north of this sign. They set up in between catching people who pass thru north on their return south that think the 30-45 change is the same coming back thru.
Judge is very friendly and dismissed probably 50 tickets that session, most without any court cost or traffic court. Did not see the point.
Leaving Milan toward Medina and Jackson..on 45 south…it is a 4 lane. Speed limit 35…extremely low limit for the type of Hwy. and is surprising.. I along w/ many that I know have been ticketed there..close to car dealerships..Same thing upon returning to Milan…
Going thru Milan north-south on 45E, watch for all areas of the city to be posted at 30 mph, even if there are four lanes and a center turning lane. Radar used and strictly enforced.
Speed limit drops from 55 to 30 mile and hour
