Bridgeton, North Carolina Roadblocks
License check. Always in front of the wildlife signs. The 3 times I have seen it it was around 3pm. Always during the day
There really are small towns that make a lot of money off the speeders on interstate highways. Rather than taking a bite out of genuine crime, they hire cops who spend their days hiding in the roadside bushes with a radar gun and writing tickets. This sort of activity has very little to do with public safety, but is instead a pretense to stop passing motorists for seat belt violations, or any of several other petty offenses. If you fail the “attitude test”, you’ll pay dearly. Instead of stopping every car, the Bridgeton Police select out of state plates; knowing that these folks will not be available to contest the charges and will just pay the fine and they always circle the place on the ticket to pay via WWW!
Every week on Halfmoon road just past the graveyard around the first curve in between the two houses located past the cemetary, usually around 11:00 AM and then around 3PM. On Wildlife just before the little bridge and occuring at apx the same time of day as Halfmoon. On Antioch just before the curve that interescts the bridgeton elementary school road, usually on Sundays around 11 AM and again at 5 PM. This is getting to be slightly ridiculous, it seems that just because we live in a rural country area we are always getting stopped by road blocks, all they are doing is harrassing us and somehow this type of harrassment must be stopped. Why don’t they do what they are being paid to do, work the streets to get rid of the rapists, murderers, drug dealers and gangs and leave everyone else to their own business. I am rather sick and tired of having to see them just about everyday and this is truly nonsense.
Located on US Hwy 17 between the north end of the Neuse River Bridge & Bridgeton.
