City of Damascus Responds to Prosecutor's Speed Trap Findings

DAMASCUS, Ark.- The city has responded to a February 23 ruling from prosecutor Cody Hiland that found Damascus police were operating an illegal speed trap under state statute.

In their rebuttal the city says that the findings did not take into account "revenue figures, included certain fines, fees, and costs that were not attributable to speeding citations or violations of city ordinances." In the report it goes on to mention that warning signs for a speed limit decrease are clearly posted within a stretch of 1.6 miles.
