Not really a "speed trap", however, if you run a red light, you automatically trigger a few high resolution cameras that take photos of you and the front and rear of your car. Ticket is $75, which you receive in the mail.

UCCS police are watching this stretch of road, writing tickets for speed, weaving, following to close. This is an every day all day long patrol. Speed limit is 40MPH but most do 50 to 55 in this area. Most people don’t think they can write them, but they are state police officers that can & will stop you. Just be careful in this area.

There are several places for the police to patrol this area, from the hotel parking lot, the church parking lot or a couple of strip malls. The speed limit is 30 mph; this is a multi-lane divided street in a commercially zoned area. Between my wife and myself, we’ve had 3 tickets there in the last two years. We now avoid driving on this street.

I’ve seen cars parked by the pizza place behind the gas station.

1-2 Miles Before Woodmen and Academy

There are at least 2 motorcycle cops who like to hang out at a coned-in median approaching this intersection. This entire section is a “construction zone” though the place where the cops hang out has no flagmen, roadside workers. Most of the construction is focused on the Woodmen and Academy intersection where the overpass bridge is currently being built.

How do I know? Today, I had to accelerate to pass a car doing well below 30 mph speed limit and got tagged by one of these cops. This happened at the very far side of the construction zone where there is nothing but dirt mounds and nothing tied to construction. This is a speed trap… don’t even think that this isn’t part of the construction zone because it is.

Oh, and one more thing… if you get “caught” speeding in a construction zone in C. Springs… your fine will be DOUBLED. Hefty fines. I learned the hard way. AVOID THIS AREA… cops are monitoring this area because most people speed (which is understandable given the arbitrary nature of both the speed limit and the construction zone boundaries). Beware.
