Boulder, Colorado Speed Traps
unmarked police car with 2 officers using lasers.
Marked police car sits on the road just south of the hotel, by the condos. Speed limit there is still 35, but cars are beginning to speed up in anticipation of the Turnpike, so it’s easy pickings.
Right before Moorhead turns gently into large apartments and the liquor store, There is frequently a white unmarked Speed Van parked on the Eastern side of the road. I think the speed limit might go as low as 25 here, so it tends to catch a lot of people off guard.
This is for people driving under the overpass, North Bound on US-36 at Tablemesa. Cops will sit on the grassy hill to the side of the on-ramp on to US-36. If you’re scanning the roads for cops, you’ll never see this guy, he hides in the shadow of the on-ramp, on a fairly steep section of the hill. I’ve seen people go 90+ past one of these guys without ever even touching their brakes.
During school hours they park on a dirt patch next to the road (on the hill portion). The speed limit is 20MPH during school hours and fines are doubled.
