Is it a Law?

Supposedly there was a Knoxville city cop at a speed trap on Sutherland Ave. last night outside my church - the word from someone who went out and talked to him was that he had nabbed 16 people, and would ticket anyone pulling into the church parking lot too quickly. And that we need to install speed bumps at the entrance and exits.

My question is, is there a speed limit for entrance and exits to private parking lots? If the speed limit on Sutherland is 35 and you're caught doing 45 that's one thing. If you're doing 35 and pull into the parking lot at about 25 mph would that earn you a ticket? Where's the actual statute for parking lot speeding?

I blame the Charter.
