Arvada, Colorado Speed Traps
This trap is on Marshall just South of the railroad tracks, where Lamar St turns into Marshall. Traveling Southbound after going over the tracks, there is a downhill stretch and a curve toward the North. The speed limit is 25 mph, but it is very easy to exceed the speed limit on the downhill run. The APD officers like to position themselves at the far end of the curve, where they won’t be spotted until it’s too late.
Since the no tolerance went in to effect HP has set up speed trap two days in a row. Using a radar gun in the median and four chase cars parked on the shoulder E bound.
9:30 PM on a Thurs evening, Jeffco SO. After the light furher south, pulls me over and cites me doing 53 in a 35. I never saw him. Says he was sitting at 58th and clocked me on radar. $155 total contribution to Jeffco’s coffers.
Traveling north on Wadsworth by Indian Tree Golf Course. Motorcycle cops sit on sidewalk In shade of tree and clock you coming up the hill. Traveling south on Wadsworth between 72nd and 76th, the cop (sometimes car sometimes motorcycle) sits In the driveway of a home on the east side and clocks you coming down the hill. Most enforcement when schools in the area are starting/on lunch/end of school day.
Be careful not to speed on Independence Avenue.
