West Springfield, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Usually during the day, during nice weather both Staties and local cops watching for expired inspection stickers, often in unmarked cars.
Coming around the bend into Westfield it’s only posted 40 and they sit with a speed gun on the right side by the rail road. Usually by the time you see them and you’re going 50 or more they got you. Usually on nice days.
Be careful while traveling in either direction on this road. It’s a two lane road so traffic moves along pretty quick but the speed limit is posted 30mph.
Cop sits in service garage parking (business) lot just after the the old Bigy Supermarket building where the road bends along the river. He typically parks his car and uses Lidar or Radar out the window towards the traffic coming from Westfield. At times works with a buddy who sits down the road a bit and must radio to him to catch the ‘offender’. I’ve seen both marked and unmarked cruisers here.
During rush hours a West Springfield cop car with Laser will be strategically parked at one of the empty parking lots. You can’t see if you don’t know where to expect. Oftentimes the trooper will get out and point the radar gun. It clocks cars on the flat stretch between Jiffy Lube and Big E grounds. I believe the posted speed limit is 30.
