Arvada, Colorado Speed Traps
Going northbound on Quaker the speed limit is 40 MPH. However, when you drop down the hill, the speed limit changes to 30MPH. The police wait at the bottom of the hill on the west side behind a large tree. They’ve been there for over a year.
Traveling North Or South On Wadsworth Bypass– Traveling North A Motorcycle Cop Sits On The East Side Of Wadsworth On 62nd And Clocks You At The Bottom Of The Hill. Traveling South The Cop Sits On The West Side Of The Bypass In The Arvada Maintenence Lot And Clock You Again At The Bottom Of The Hill. The Landmark To Watch For Is The Train Tracks That Cross Over Wadsworth–Once You Pass Under Them, In Either Direction You Are Visible To The Laser; And Due To The Placement Of The Train Bridge You Do Not See The Cop Until It Is To Late. Unfair Because Either Direction You Build Speed Coming Down The Hill, And They Target You At The Bottom. Weekends Especially Enforced!
