Aurora, Colorado Speed Traps
Aurora police love just camping out behind the buildings near here and gun people going northbound on Airport Road. Speed is 40mph but tempting to go faster due to 3 lanes and straight open road. Can’t see them until the last possible second and then it is too late. These campers will get you to slow down here and save your money!
This is usually when the weather warms up and people start to go faster, or rush hour (if volume doesn’t slow everyone down), weekends and holidays.
Usually a motorcycle officer on the corner of E. Bates Ave. at S. Chambers Rd., on either side, east or west. Sometimes an officer is by the light at Yale Ave., looks like a pedestrian waiting to cross. There is also a bus stop there, so if you slow down to see if it’s an RTD passenger or a cop….you are probably safe.
They have a photo radar set up here on the side where the fire station is. If you go barely past the yellow, you will be mailed a speeding ticket. $70-$100 and no points off your license.
This my friends is a trap and and half. It’s in a part of town where Denver and Aurora meet in the funny little area anyway they like to hide under those two overhead passes, just waiting there lurking like the vultures that they are!
One, sometimes 2 marked cop cars sit here getting traffic from both directions, but usually those going eastbound. There is a rise in the road for people going eastbound, so it is especially hard to see them, but sometimes they will park behind the fence of the maintenance shed so you can’t see them from either direction. I’ve also noticed them here really late at night on weekends, probably trying to catch drunk drivers leaving the clubhouse or pull high schoolers over when coming back from parties. Watch out!
