Loveland, Colorado Speed Traps
This 4 mile stretch of road has a couple of sharp turns on it but the entire road is posted 25 MPH. This was the speed limit before it was paved and before guardrails were installed. Normal speeds for most of this road would be 35-40 MPH. Two Larimer County Sheriff’s Deputies are on this road and hide in several pull-outs. This is a very rural area yet 16 tickets were issued in a three month period.
LPD sit in the Cattail Creek parking lot and clock the cars coming down the hill from the direction of Wilson (west). Speed limit is 35, people generally drive around five miles over and the hill on 29th will quickly put you into the “danger zone”. Speed trap is more likely in the summer as the squads can hide among the other cars in the parking lot.
Officers sit in unmaked cars or on motorcycles between 10th St. and 12th St. on Lincoln or between 12th St. and 8th St. on Cleveland. The speed limit is 30 MPH. Most of the time they are south of East Eisenhower Blvd.
Larimer County Sheriff’s Dept sits on the East side of the road hidden by a bridge/guard rail. They are very hard to see until right up on them. The car is always pointed north towards HWY 402 and parallel with TaFort
Glade Road is a paved, high use, county road with a posted speed limit of 30 mph, which is totally unrealistic. A County Sheriff’s vehicle picks off people one by one, since most people are driving 40 – 50 mph.
