Denver, Colorado Speed Traps
Cops shooting radar from the Exit 212C bridge that is above I-25. They are shooting radar both for north and south bound.
There is a motorcycle cop doing speed readings in the north bound left breakdown lane right after Arapaho. 08/04/2014 2:45 PM
School Zone for one measly block. Likes to flag down people going 35 to get them for 15 mph over. Motorbike cop on the sidewalk with laser walks into the street and directs you over to the side. As soon as I pulled away, immediately pulled over the next victim. Fines doubled since it’s a school zone, $305 for going 35mph, pure money grab at its best.
Eastbound Alameda has a large hill immediately after crossing Sheridan Blvd. At the bottom of the hill is a church, then a moose lodge and the police officer parks his car in this parking lot, waiting for anyone who didn’t ride their brakes down the hill. Wash, rinse and repeat all day long. Sometimes, he wants a change of pace and sits on the other side of the road to catch westbound people.
Revenue generator! Red Light Speed Trap: Tickets are issued even if you enter the intersection on yellow. East bound traffic is faced with two traffic lights that are "Out-of-sync" with the flow of traffic. Drivers are accelerating up a hill and barely make the first light. If they "press on" they will "run" the traffic light at 14th and Pennsylvania. A police cruiser is planted on a side street and routinely issues tickets for running a red light. (IMHO) It is unlikely that police officer’s vantage point (view) from the side street can DEFINITELY assess whether or not your car’s front tires entered the intersection when the light was yellow or red (Which, according to the officer issuing the ticket, is the way the police Department determines whether or not you broke the law).
