Last week, A Better Region 8 focused on Highway 226 through Cash, Arkansas, and asked if our viewers think it's a "speed trap" operated by the city of Cash and its police department. The Arkansas Speed Trap Law states that a city is only allowed to receive 30 percent of total expenditures from fines and fees.
Here at A Better Region 8, we believe in giving you a voice. We asked for your thoughts on the Arkansas Speed Trap Law and if the law, as written, defines this as a speed trap to you.
Although the responses varied in opinion, the passion behind many of the opinions was strong
Whether or not it's a speed trap as defined by the current law is yet to be determined. If you want the Arkansas Speed Trap Law rewritten, let your state legislator know. Until this all gets resolved, my advice is to set your cruise control at 65 mph when going through Cash, Arkansas.
To everyone who wrote us, and responded on social media with your opinion, thank you. Making your voice heard and being open to opposing points of view makes this A Better Region 8.
