LEGAL TIP OF THE WEEK
BE CAREFUL IN THIS COMMON SPOT FOR TRAFFIC STOPS
If you have ever come cruising off of the highway and wondered how quickly you need to slow your pace to avoid a speeding ticket, wonder no longer! The answer is immediately. As soon as you transition from the interstate to a city street, you need to abide by the posted limit right away. Nowhere is this more evident than when you exit onto Oklahoma City Boulevard from 35, coming in to the downtown area from Norman or the south side. The speed limit immediately drops to 45, then 35, and finally 25…all in the span of less than half a mile. Oklahoma City police cruisers are keen to the fact many motorists are unaware of the rapid speed limit drop, and this makes Oklahoma City Boulevard a popular spot for officers to hang out and write tickets. If you do get a ticket here, or anywhere else, call our office for help. Even if you are told the ticket will not go on your record, chances are your insurance will be alerted and your rates could increase. It is important to fight every traffic ticket, to keep rates low and keep points off of your record.
