Anchorage, Alaska Speed Traps
You turn onto Boundary going West which is 25 mph, at the corner of Boundary and Idaho, shortly after is a speed limit sign posted 35 mph, the police like to sit in that parking lot on the left of the hill and like to catch you “speeding” going down the hill and when they pull you over give you the ticket for going past the posted speed limit of 25, not the 35 which is directly in front of you going down the hill
Construction zone. Marked patrol car waits on south side of intersection. Not at all noticeably while heading east on Northern Lights.
Unmarked police car sits on Oceanview Drive just south of the T-intersection where Oceanview Drive/Cross Rd meet.
There are two turn off streets right across from the high school on west 88th. At least twice a week there are cops pulled far enough back on the side streets to catch motorist going above the 20 mph during school because the lights are flashing. One afternoon before 12:30, 2 people were pulled over in less than 5 minutes.
On the newly constructed connection, there are usually cruisers (both marked and unmarked) sitting on either side of the road. Going eastbound, there is a marked cruiser sitting in a small lot hidden by trees about 200 feet from the light. Going West, after you come down the small hill, there is a cop sitting in a small parking spot, next to the dead end sign. Speed limit is 45, though it isn’t unlikely to look down and see yourself going 55.
