i have been noticing a a crap load of speed traps lately here in town. Every time you turn around their is a speed trap somewhere. I have seen heavy radar use on Aviation Road and 5th street leading towards Gilliams carwash. I have also seen them at Fraleys Park.

Now the reason I believe this is going is because the fools in town hall bought the old Gulf gas station beside of Mutual's They paid $110,000 for it and they want to turn it into a tourist vistor center? Come on really? I thought we already had one in the 101 INTERSTATE RR car? They also said the reason they bought that is so buses can pull under the shed. Really, how ofter do you see a tourist bus stop in BSG with a load of tourist on board just dying to see the place?

So this is the reason for all of the speed traps in and around town is so they can get funds to help pay for the building they don't need. So if any of you get stopped ask the cop how much of your fine is going towards the stupid tourist center. Oh one more thing how come they never really discussed this with the public?

Now if I get harassed for not doing a dang thing by the local pd I will sue the hell out of BSG.

PS they have been parking between two cars on Aviation road and you can't see them until you get right up on top of them.This is right between 3rd and 4th street on the right side if you are coming from Rogers 66.

So its up you the citizens of BSG to watch out for this communist Hazzard County Boss Hogg act and not let them win. On a little side note there is more wrong doings in this town that are passed under the table. I am about ready to call in the Feds on this place.

Seriously. They sit in plan view dude so deal with it. Do the speed limit and u won't get stopped. Pretty simple. Everyone knows they sit at fraleys and aviation. Grow up. And don't try to goto court saying they were hiding because the judge will only laugh at you, as well as everyone else in the court room when the judge makes you look like a retard.

this is just how small towns are. you should probably get used to it. in a place where every body knows every body else it is hard for justice to truly prevail.

Even better, is that its usually the neighbors that call on the speeders and tell the cops when and where to sit and catch these people. So don't fuss at cops for doing as citizens ask, fuss at the nosey neighbors who want you to get caught!

Personally, I am glad that there are speed traps all over town so that you idiots that come tearing up and down the roads will slow down. I wish they would do something about the tailgaters that ride my bumper as I am doing the speed limit down country boy hill and down the hill both ways at the SWVA Museum. The only time I am not worried about being rear ended turning on either side of the road at the museum is when they are sitting there, that is the only time anyone does the speed limit on that road...so, really, it would be great if they could post a cop there 24/7/365.

@FYI I will say that I find it hilarious, on another post on topix everyone is ragging on the cops for not doing their job and wasting taxpayers money, and here you are on here complaining about them doing their job and issuing tickets. Too funny. When you do get your ticket for speeding, please be so kind as to post your court date so that anyone that wants can come up there and hear your "defense"- everyone can use a laugh now a days.

It's about time they do something on aviation people fly down that road. I agree, don't speed and you won't have to worry about it. More police presents is a good thing, if you aren't breaking the law!!

You dont get it the part about the town buying a useless building in which we have to pay for. You don't understand that they are harassing all of us because they need to recoup their funds for such a stupid idea in the first place.

Yeah I'm glad they are doing their job but really come on this has heavily picked up in the past week or so after this info was told to me about the building. Aviation RD is nothing but a speed trap always has been. If they really want to go bring in some cash, go bust the drug addicts and dealers. Bust the ones who do not use turn signals or those who make illegal u-turns in the middle of town.

If this was for something we all could use day in and day out I would not have an issue with it but we are not going to hardly use the building they have bought anyway so its a waste of our money but you cant tell hard heads that especially those that run the town.

Anyway I never post on here about anything. I dont even like the site but when it comes to something that the public needs to be informed about I decided to pot this insider info I received as a heads up to what is going on but I guess it was not welcome so you all have fun getting screwed up the @$$ by the crooks of HAZZARD STONE GAP and the BOSS HOGG figures that run the place. There is more than this going on around here. I will never give you all a heads up about anything ever again.

@FYI..I have a "heads up" for you...don't break the law and you won't get a ticket...oh, and here's some "insider info" for you speeding is breaking the law DUH!

Personally, I hope the town continues its investment in infrastructure and improving the town. There are many things that could be done to improve tourist interest in the town and the county as a whole. I think buying the building was a great idea. Hopefully the town will hire a few local people to staff it. As far as patrols picking up in the past week or so, in the past two days I have seen no less than 3 one car accidents on country boy hill because of speeding and loosing control of the vehicle. I hope the news spreads far and wide that they are out patroling more so that the idiots get the idea that speeding is not okay.

@think....wow, carl lives in town, and most of the people on town council live in town, so, you are right, its so obvious, why didn't I see it before...this conspiracy is so "obvious"...carl is only living in this town and owning businesses here for the perks, all ownership in big stone is part of a vast, secret consipiracy...personally, I blame the illuminati...its all part of their secret plot to control the world and they are starting right here in big stone gap...little did all of you know that Mayor Bailey is housing the anti-christ in her basement, ready to spring him on the unsuspecting town any day now...all to ensure that her friends get all of the cushy perks directed towards them...

so think, fyi, get out while you can before the illuminati gets you...stay tuned for more updates, only here will you find the vital info you need to know to remain free...important things such as the truth about the lines being repainted on town streets...NO, they didn't repaint the lines in the road so people can stay on the right side, OH NO, its a vast conspiracy of brain washing to get the residents to like the color yellow, since Mayor Bailey is blonde, its her favorite color, and she wants everyone else to love yellow too...also, the new traffic lights, they are not to improve the town's safety and appearance, no, those are mind conditioning units to get town residents to relect the town council into perpetuity...yes, beware the illuminati they are everywhere and Carl is the grand dragon of them all......sorry, I have to pause for a quick trip to the ER, I have herniated myself from laughing my ass off at think and FYI...of course, its not their fault, blame the illuminati!!!

I believe they are speaking of the old dishner building which roger ayers bought out for his sons and then he wasn't able to afford it anymore. Right beside mutuals, old gas station

No, you are the one that needs professional counseling thinking that the town bought the building as a favor to a local business person. My comments were meant in a satirical and sarcastic tone to show how rediculous your comments and FYI's comments have been on this board...of course, you happen to be the same person, so perhaps if you ever get your head out of your a$$ and seek help you could inquire about MPD since you post under so many different aliases.

In my opinion, regardless of who owns the building, buying the old gas station to make it a local center to promote tourism in big stone gap is a great idea, if any of you will bother to go visit the town's website, there is a master plan that is available online that shows the planned improvements for the town that should help to promote tourism and other sources of revenue for the town.

I think its a good idea too located next to mutuals. I know the other building was purchased with plans to remodel it with a new idea. So point being ask being judging
