With its former mayor in jail on drug charges and after most other city employees who walked out after a state audit found missing money and possibly criminal mismanagement, the city of Hampton may not be around much longer.

To anyone who ever got a speeding ticket while passing through the two miles of U.S. 301 within the Hampton city limits, this is welcome news.

With only 477 residents, the city has brought in as much as $200,000 annually from traffic citations.

Just to give you an idea of how shameless the town is, here is the town border from Google Maps
