NO city of 400 requires FOUR full-time officers. They were on the payroll solely to generate $$$ from their speed traps. Those of us who drive that route daily/weekly are very aware of the ABUSE of this entity! When all the money was spent to improve US 65, it should have been to BY-PASS Damascus altogether (like US 67 was rebuilt in Northeast AR). That would have solved the problem!

Easy solution. Remove authority for local law enforcement to write tickets on state or federal highways. No more Damascus, Concord, Earle, Guy, and Parkin type speed traps. Problem solved.

That place has been a speed trap for years and years.
