No, drivers who cannot read are the LAME ones! And no it is not a pig sty. Speeding is very strictly inforced to protect residents from impaired drivers. It is a very small and compact senior retirement/summer home community. Fishermen come to the area in droves and most park near the highway to fish off the adjacent bridges and banks. Adults w/wo children walk across this route 24/7 in nice weather.

I've never been to Bernice but I think the whole area is picturesque. Grove is real nice. I looked up Bernice- the median age of the residents is around 55. I have no problem with obeying the law and I'd take my lumps if I went over the speeding limit- especially with people crossing the road. I do understand the feeling of being picked on for two miles over the limit. Cars are just so powerful these days. Maybe a warning was in order.

I stand by my statement. I've been driving through Bernice probably once a week for over 13 years and not once have I seen anyone walking across the highway. The homes on the lake side of the highway have all turned into trailer trash, it's a horrible eye sore.

I'll single out Idabel. It made me see what poverty can really be like in Oklahoma. What a run down, weathered, dreary looking town. Downtown looked awful. The only building that looked in good shape was a drive-bank. The people in that town need to have more pride in their town, if they can afford it.

That part of the state is about as underdeveloped and corrupt as some of the third world countries I've been to.

That's where I realized not ALL of America is a first world country.

Beautiful scenary though.

Sorry if I offended people from there.

Well, I've been on the highway through northeast Enid and wasn't positively impressed, but don't recall it being especially bad.
