Lakewood, Colorado Speed Traps
Wheat Ridge, CO has been running a speed trap on Wadsworth Blvd both North and South bound. Even at night with no lights on, in the dark, which I thought is illegal!!!! BEWARE!!!!
Patrol cars will hide in the side street approaching Harlan from the East. They will have motorcycle cops coming in the other direction. 1st avenue approaching Harlan is preceded by an uphill climb. You will accelerate to go up hill and when you reach the top of the hill and the road flattens, the motorcycle cops are there to stop you as you begin to deccelerate. The 1st avenue speed limit is 30 MPH. This is definitely a corrupt practice as the patrol car cannot be seen as the car is accelerating to climb the hill but htey are there as the motorcycle cops do not have radar guns. The practice is unethical.

The police sit on the street far enough back that no one can see them till it’s too late. Speed limit is 40 going to the hill and it’s easy to speed. Be very careful.
Police sit on east side of Pierce facing northbound traffic. Vehicles going southbound from Florida Avenue are monitored. The police sit there when you are in a hurry to get home from work- usually around 4:30-5:30 PM.
