Sign: "Next 3 Miles Police Harassment"

Posted: Updated:

GERONIMO, Okla._ Another sign has popped up along U.S. Highway 277 blaming the Geronimo Police Department of creating a speed trap.

The new sign reads: “Next 3 Miles Police Harassment.” A 7News viewer said the sign was put up within the past week. We told you about another sign, one reading, “Police Trap Ahead,” last week.

Mayor Ed Mounts says police do monitor that stretch of highway, but it is not a speed trap. He says the entire stretch of highway is 65 MPH.

The argument was addressed at a council meeting July 3. The mayor says he’s not bothered by the sign, because he believes it’s a good thing if people are starting to slow down.
