Surrey, British Columbia Speed Traps
The speed limit of BC Hwy 15/17 drops from 80 km/h to 60 km/h near Hwy 1 junction and the speed limit drops from 100km/h to 60 km/h coming off of Hwy 1 to eastbound Hwy 17.
Traffic flows well over 80 km/h as divided four-lanes, access-controlled highway going downhill. Speed enforcement used to be very rare along this stretch, but it started to become a frequent speed trap in 2021 during weekday evening rush hours targeting drivers going downhill.
An unmarked police cruiser is typically parked on the westbound (north) shoulder past CN Intermodal/104 Ave East off-ramp and before the next 104 Ave intersection, pointing a speed gun at a driver coming down the hill over the 60 km/h posted limit.
Speed zone is severely underposted at 50 km/h when most cars are travelling in excess of 70. Stretches from Tannery Road to near 124th street. The whole highway is underposted at 80 km/h.
they are on the right hand side of the road heading to the intersection of 88 th and king george, they pull you over in the bear creek park parking lot.
They wave vehicles into the entrance of the Green Timbers Reforestation area, off 96th Avenue where they can’t be seen issuing tickets. They use the street lamp near the entrance there for cover and to stabilise their LIDAR guns.
Golden Ears bridge onto 96 ave speed drops to 60 kms from 80kph. Down hill and fenced 2 lane highway with long stretches between intersections. Ideal money maker.
