Seward, Alaska Speed Traps
The Alaska State troopers (multiple vehicles), travel around Seward (I saw them in the radius of 25 miles) and catch unsuspecting visitors. I found only visitors being stopped and harassed (you can tell by the rental cars & agency signs). The road is very scenic with lots of overlook places. Also the road changes from 2 lane to one lane (in one direction), I was caught while merging as I increased the speed to pass one vehicle and let it merge. The trooper was coming from the opposite direction (travelling in a Chevy SUV) and I’m not sure how he was able to judge my speed! Anyway he said he clocked me at 73 on a 55 mile limit, I think I was only doing a 63 (was on cruise for 57 all along).
I think its a big trap to get money for the local community – unfortunately most of the business in the town depends on visitors!
