Damascus Loses Speed-Trap Motion

US 65

Faulkner County Circuit Court Judge Chris Carnahan on Wednesday, declined to grant a motion declaring the state’s speed-trap law unconstitutional.

It was in response to a motion by the town of Damascus which is suing to overturn sanctions against the town that lies along U.S. 65 on the Faulkner and Van Buren county line.

Judge Carnahan did leave another argument in the lawsuit which is whether the Arkansas State Police’s calculations that led to the sanctions were done correctly.

Carnahan added however, that any constitutional problems with the statute should be addressed with the Legislature rather than his court.
