Arvada, Colorado Speed Traps
At Sheridan the speed limit drops to 55, and cops sit on the side of the road or off the HOV lane ticketing speeders
Cop sits on westbound side of 64th clocking cars turning onto eastbound 64th from Highway 93. Speed limit is 35 mph, and cars just coming off Hwy 93 are “accustomed” to going a bit faster than that. Cops are there fairly frequently so I’m aware (but one of my friends wasn’t – to the tune of a 4-point speeding ticket).
Going north or south on simms, from 58th. there is moterclce cops sitting on the side streets. enforcing the the school zone speed limit.
Chase St. used to be 35 mph, now is 25. Chase St. is a thoroughfare type road, eg. double yellow lane stripes and quite wide. The cops can hide anywhere along the mile or so stretch. I know two people who have been tagged there in the last year.
For vehicles traveling Southbound, the speed limit drops from 30 to 25 mph on a slightly downhill stretch approaching the railroad tracks. The APD likes to position themselves at the bottom of the downhill run on the far side of RR tracks where they are hard to see and can aim the radar uphill.
They are pushing hard for revenue in Arvada, so it’s good to be careful everywhere.
