Right before exit 13 going towards Waturbury if you look on the left of the highway right after the sign above, there is a dirt spot left from a sitting car, I have seen cops hiding there many times, even if they aren’t there you could see the mark from them being there so be careful! You have to really look because its surrounded by trees.
There are numerous hiding places between Shelton and Waterbury on Route 8. The speed limits vary between 45 and 55 quite a bit. I am usually doing 70+ to keep up with traffic. The Connecticut State Police monitor this road. Be Careful! They are everywhere!
