Tullahoma, Tennessee Speed Traps
Cop usually parks in the Christ Church parking lot and radar guns both directions. Anything over 35mph gets you a ridiculously expensive ticket. Tullahoma definitely views "traffic enforcement" as a lucrative revenue stream.
Even if you follow the speed limit the speed fluctuates often and in a short distance between 55 and 45. There isn’t enough time to decelerate and the Air Base police are hiding in the ditches with a radar gun to catch people. Ten mph is enough for them to give you a ticket and the judge won’t waive it for a safe driving class. It’s easy to catch out of town drivers.
Wattendorf Highway is a rural, 2-lane road with speed limit signs of 55 mph, except the 1 mile stretch in front of each of the two AEDC/Arnold AFB gates: Gate 2 and Main Gate (old aircraft sits in front of the gates). Leaving Tullahoma, heading towards I-24, the speed limit sign reads 55 mph. Without speed reduction warning signs, the 40 mph sign appears and the AEDC/Arnold AFB police are sitting right inside the 40 mph section on the side of the highway where the AEDC/Arnold AFB gates are waiting to ticket those people who did not drop immediately from 55 mph to 40 mph. I have videotaped this stretch of the highway.
Rolling city cop with radar runs both directions between 1200 – 1500 block and gets two or three a day. the speed limit drops from 45 to 30 just beyond the Spring creek church going back towards town and he gets you in that block. Will not give you a break either.
Will stop you for 1 or 2 miles over 30 MPH
