WI Rustic Roads: Washburn County, R71

Published Wednesday, April 17, 2024 by Bryan

I get the feeling that the residents of Washburn County that live along Rustic Road 71 do not want people to drive there. At least, it's one of very few places in northern Wisconsin that I've seen speed bumps. Eight of them in less than two miles! I felt like I was back on the VMware campus, navigating to one of the parking garages.

That makes this a good moment to remind everyone that the field of view of these cameras can fool your perception of speed. I assure you that I am following the posted limits (just look at those complete stops at stop signs!), despite taking advantage of the full lane to keep your view less bumpy.
