Nenana, Alaska Speed Traps
State trooper sits on a turn out on the North side of the road. If you are coming South to Anchorage, as soon as you are out of the turn 1.5 miles, he has you, and if you are coming North to Fairbanks, as soon as you crest the top of the hill 1.4 miles, he has you.
Troopers Routinely cruise this area, because of the extremely long straight stretches. It’s easy to loose the reins, and let your automobile stretch its legs so to speak, in this area. Troopers are well aware of this, and sit and wait for anyone who’s tempted to do so…They don’t need to hide, because as quickly as you get up to speed, it takes a little longer to slow down. Chances are by the time you’ve identified the radar, you’ve been tagged. They just wait till you come to them. Latest trick is posting an area that’s near a construction zone with signs, that read double fines for speeding…………Ugh! what next! One last remark. In the Trapper Creek Area on the same State Hwy. There’s a motion activated camera and sensors across the Hwy that tags your speed and gets a photo of your lic. plate at the same time. Troopers from the comfort of there Hwy office site you via mail! If you’re coming from Anchorage heading North thru Trapper creek keep your eyes to the West side of the Hwy and you’ll see the trap…..same with the other direction………….Happy Motoring……………………..
