Stamford, Connecticut Speed Traps
Patrol Car hides in parking lot of Woodside Fire House out of the sightline of cars driving on Washington Blvd. The speed limit is 35 I believe, most cars go 50. The best defense against a ticket is just slow down to 40 mph between the intersection of Washington Blvd. and Bridge St., and Woodside Fire House (where the cops usually are) about 1/2 mile down the road.
40 MPH speed limit on road where it is easy to go 50-60. Patrol car is usually hidden from view on a side street by Rippowam Middle School catching speeders traveling south into town. Enforcement seems most prevalent on weekends.
Southbound traffic on Washington Blvd (Route 137) approaching downtown Stamford. Speed posted is 35 mph. but you could easily and safely go much faster and that is the problem. Police sit in front of the Woodside Firehouse. Sometimes one car, sometimes two cars with one to chase and an officer standing outside of the car holding the radar gun. You come around a bend to the right and there they are on the right. No time to react. If you are speeding, you are caught. I pass it twice a day to and from work and they are almost always there, often with someone pulled over.
I’ve recently pulled over at these roads two times in the past month once for speeding and once for rolling through the stop sign and have seen many others pulled over.
There’s usually a cruiser sitting at the bottom of the exit 9 ramp durring the am rush hour. He’s usually there every morning right where the traffic starts to open up and you can start to drive faster.
