When were those signs posted? Do you have any pics of the signs? Did you actually sit and watch the LEO write a ticket. Your post smells like it came flying out of your ass.

I was sitting at the overlook at the dam, there was a Tennessee trooper on the opposite side of the road. A semi came through, and the cop jumped in her car to follow the semi. I was camped at Abrams Creek, so 5-10 minutes after the truck and trooper took off, I headed out as well. Found the Semi on the side of the road with Trooper writing a ticket. Didn't stop to ask.

Perhaps she had another reason to pull him , I thought it odd that she would jump after the truck, but ignored all the Bikes and 3 Wheelers obviously breaking the speed limit.

Also the next day heading back into the gap 2 other semis sitting in the same pull offs just west of Deals Gap getting tickets as well. Again I didn't see the circumstances that got them pulled.



You're right the signs don't say not allowed...



and on the Tennessee side..

They get pulled over for failure to maintain lane, just like a lot of regular cars, bikes, and trucks get pulled over for crossing the double yellow.
