Sherman, Connecticut Speed Traps
Tropper sits in school parking lot. He can radar in both directions and straight ahead. Speed limit is 25mph
There is a small cut out in the road right past the red light, if you are traveling north. If traveling south you will get trapped comming down the hill shortly after you cross over from New Milford. During the night the tropper is tucked in so tight, you cant see them until it is to late. Speed limit is 35mph.
State Trooper will sit in main driveway,parking lot behind the Priests house or over to the side of soccer parking lot. Speed Limit is a very slow 25mph.Another spot is located on the hill as you come into town from Rt 55, next to the IGA. Speed limit drops from 45 to 25mph. He actually is very adept at hiding all over town at all hours of the day or night. There is also a second Trooper that pops in regularly so don’t assume that you are safe to go faster after you spot the first one. Although it is extremely annoying I have to grudgingly give them credit for creativity and diligence.
after crossing into Sherman from New Fairfield, there is a long straightaway with a passing zone. In the horse farm with a half circle driveway the state cops sit in. AM & PM traffic. once and a while late nite.
Trooper parks a marked car on West side of Rte 39 on wide spots on the grass verge partly hidden by vegetation. Observed seveal times weekly for more than a year. Speed limit is 45 but the road is fairly straight for more than a mile and has no intersections or blind driveways. Most motorists tend to exceed the limit by 10 to 15 miles per hour.
