Colorado Springs, Colorado Speed Traps
Anywhere from 1-3 motorcycle officers have taken to sitting in an alley between N. 24th and N. 23rd streets on the south side of Uintah across from Thorndale Park. They are there in the morning hours approximately 8 am to 11 am. Speed limit through there drops from 35 mph to 30 mph but that is a little downhill valley and a lot of people do not slow down. The officers are having a field day out there. I see them every morning on my way to work. I’ve also seen them pull people over for not completely stopping before turning at some of the stop signs on the side streets.
3 motorcycle officers sit on the sidewalk corners waiting for people speeding through that intersection and people that turn on yellow and red arrows. They are there during the lunch hours, 11 am- 1 pm. They will pull you over even if you turn on a yellow arrow. They actually park their motorcycles on the sidewalks or on the grassy patches in front of the Burger King, McDonalds, and Safeway.
Police will sit in the parking lot of Ute Valley Park and catch you speeding. Going east there is a rise so you wont see him until its too late. Going west you come around a curve and will not see him until too late.
You pass through 6 law enforcement districts that all tag speeders on this route … Sheriffs of El Paso and Teller Counties, City Police of Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs and Woodland Park and CO State Patrol.
On Flying W Ranch Road near Chipeta Elementary there will usually be a CO Springs police officer on a motorcycle. He will pull you over for going much faster than 25mph.
