Nashville, Tennessee Speed Traps
Watch for speed trap at 800 2nd Avenue just before the stop sign getting onto Lebanon Road. Metro really works hard to issue tickets, I can see if you were really speeding, but going 5-10 miles over the speed limit is a little too much especially when it cost over $100.00 plus and it goes on your record.
Pulled out of parking garage and was pulled over immediately for driving 35 in a 30 mph zone. Asked if street was marked, said “No. by law all side streets are 30mph do no have to be marked.” I guess Metro has nothing else to do but tickets. Maybe we as tax payers are paying cops too much to just issue tickets. When you are in an accident it takes hours for them to reply. Way over Paid….
The speed limit on this stretch of road is 30 mph, and it is difficult to go that slow! The police hide in the entrance to the Edwin Warner picnic area and write ticket after ticket. The speed limit changes to 40 right after this stretch at the Williamson county line.
Officer sets up on traffic headed south away from town at the Fire Hall coming up the hill before Edgehill Ave.
Metro/airport cops strickly enforce full and complete stops at all (6 or more) stop signs in the ticketing/drop-off lanes at the airport, especially during slow traffic times when they can single out drivers. Airport cops cannot issue tickets, so they wait untill a metro officer arrives to issue the citation…who didn’t witness the violation….a legal grey area.
