Boulder, Colorado Speed Traps
Across from Cemetery (on east side of 9th) sits a white photo radar van. Flick your lights to warn others….
Right after the Pearl St. on-ramp to the diagonal/Foothills there will often be a motorcycle cop catching people speeding over the hill on Foothills.
They love to park the photo radar van here. You come up the hill, and can’t even see the van until you crest the top of the hill. Since people frequently exceed the limit going up this larger hill it’s quite lucrative
Between 19th & Folsom, school zone, when lights are flashing. BPD motorcycle sit near Hermosa St., w lasers on East bound traffic, could also be on West bound traffic though as well. Late afternoon, around 3:15pm. It becomes 20-25mph zone. Most do 35-40 down this road all the time.
A ticket doubles in a school zone, eg 100 becomes 200 on the spot. Officer willing to help make the process be 5 minutes, if you’re in a hurry, but the ticket sticks, not surprisingly around here, especially if you’re way over.
Unmarked black cars hiding on side streets and in parking lot at the rec. center. Radar used to catch speeding cars. Also, looking for people running stop signs.
Beware stop sign at bottom of the hill on Gillespie and Julliard. Also, watch speed in all directions for several blocks before reach Mesa Elementary in all directions.
