Ridgway, Colorado Speed Traps
Infamous speed trap on the main road from Montrose to Telluride supports the town. Officer always on duty. Speed limit is 25. You will reliably get a ticket at 26MPH. Advise going no faster than 20MPH.
60mph drops to 45mph after a blind corner without warning!
Entering Ridgway from the west on route 62, the road makes a steep descent coming down off from the Dallas Divide. Speed limit rapidly decreases from 55-to45-to35-to 25. Without moderate braking you will exceed the 25mph at the bottom of the hilol, and that’s where the radar car sets.
Main street thru town, posted down to 25 mph, town marshall just waiting to write, suspect town supported by tickets. If you got even a little bit over the posted, expect a ticket. Be very careful of the school zone, in so many words, creep thru town, its only about 6 blocks.
