Oak Ridge, Tennessee Speed Traps
Entering Oak Ridge from I-State 40, Highway 58 abruptly drops from 55mph.
to 45 for about 1/2 mile, then back to 50mph then shortly after, back to 45
again. Oak Ridge P.D spend lots of time on this stretch since it so easy to write tickets.
Red light and speed detection
The speed limit at this intersection in Oak Ridge is 40 MPH. There’s a speed camera and also a red light camera here; don’t run the light or go over 40, for you’ll get a ticket by the camera for your offense. There’s been a lot of tickets (each offense is a $50 fine) given by the speed camera at this intersection, and it’s a big money maker for the City of Oak Ridge. Be careful here.
