Blue Ridge Parkway speed limit change

Saw this announcement for the BRP and thought it worth a mention. Federal speeding tickets are >$500.00.
Effective immediately, the speed limit between Highway 74A and Highway 25 (Hendersonville Road) on the Blue Ridge Pkwy. will be reduced from 45 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour.

Revenue generator? LOTS of locals use that section as a short cut. Thanks for the heads up.

Yes, but the ticket does not go on your driver's license. From that perspective $500 is a bargain. Just sayin

My federal ticket was only $120 and it most definately wound up on my driving record here in VA.

Can't verify, but I've been told by local Lawyer (Asheville) that you'll now get points on you drivers license for violations on the BRP

That could be rough for locals. If I remember correctly NC has a low threshold for excessive speeding.

Funny, I was just about to make a post about what to do when you spotted a couple of 50cc scooters up on the parkway. I hadn't heard of this law, and I was up there just the other day- when I saw a couple of 50cc'ers, no plates, revving their tiny engines into oblivion and going almost 45 mph.

This is one aspect of this law that may not be so obvious, but it is going to open up the parkway to all those 50cc's now for that stretch of road. And that's a busy stretch of the parkway, too.

Oh...NO.

It's lookin like almost 5 miles, from what I can see on google maps. If that's all the way to 25 (Hendersonville Road), that is, not to just 25A (Sweeten Creek Rd). I take that route once in a while, but not usually. And now? Nevahhhhh!
