Branford, Connecticut Speed Traps
The Pretzel — Rt. 146 and 1/Main St. and N. Main
This is the big one: Officer sits by the BP gas station mornings and nabs people rolling through the yellow light coming from Main St. onto West Main toward the highway ramp. This light is a THREE second light! It is intentionally short on a busy morning to lure victims into getting caught under the light. Officer often rules this spot, and is ranked as the top ticket writer in town, some 3,000 and counting! In the afternoons, the officer sits in the empty parking lot across from the Exit 53 off ramp. Again, a short light designed to frustrate motorists into rolling through the red and collect revenue from the tickets.
E. Main and N. Main, Cheap Auto Rentals Parking lot
Early morning speed trap/red light trap, daily 6:00 a.m. to 7 a.m.

One officer in particular sits in the Coastal parking lot looking for illegal right turns on red.
In back of Meadow Muffin Breakfast place on Meadow St.
A cop sits back there or on the side of the building just waiting. Night time is a good place for him to hide.
Paceillo’s Pizza parking lot.
At nighttime a cop sits in his car towards Paceillo’s back door. It’s dark in that parking lot and if someone doesn’t stop at the stop sign or if they speed by him/her, that’s when he gets them.
