If you are traveling through North Carolina on Interstate 95, Benson, NC might just seem like another town on an exit sign. However, if you are speeding through North Carolina, you just might end up remembering Benson more clearly than the Google Map in the post.
Yesterday we were in the Benson area searching for a quick sandwich. When we went to get back on Interstate 95 to go back to Interstate 40, we noticed policemen on both sides of the bridge where Highway 50 crosses Interstate 95. They had radar guns. On the north bound entrance ramp we counted five police cars waiting to be dispatched to catch speeders.
My guess is that there was an equal number on the south bound ramp, since they were checking speeds on both sides of the bridge.
I guess Benson has figured out how to close any budget deficit.
Well I hope they target the nut cases who are out there driving fast and crazy. There were plenty of those on the road yesterday.
