Yeah, it happened. From what the article says, you MIGHT get away with just a warning the first time, but within a month or two, it's back to tickets.

Commonly known as the “Asheville commuter zone,” the parkway from Milepost 383 at the Swannanoa River Bridge, south to the junction at U.S. 25/Hendersonville Road at Milepost 389, is the most heavily traveled section of the most visited national park site in the country.
Quote:
Traffic volume has steadily increased in the past six years, with as many as 1,000 vehicles passing through Asheville in a single hour, in addition to people parking or walking along the shoulder of the road.Since 2006, there have been 144 motor vehicle collisions between U.S. 74A and U.S. 25, Francis said, including one fatal accident and 41 involving injuries, both with bicycles and motor vehicles.
40 MPH would have been the... ticket
