Tolland, Connecticut Speed Traps
I84 East & West
If you’re heading Eastbound, the speed trap is on your left hand side about 3/4 of a mile before Exit 68. It is at the bottom of a hill soon after the "Food – Exit 68" sign and the big electronical motorist warning sign.
The statie, in plain view, chills in one of those Authorized Vehicle Turnarounds and guns people.
Less frequently, the statie is on the other end of the turnaround and gunning Westbound drivers.
State Police are hiding around the corner by Eaton Rd catching people going north
Cops wait in a large private parking lot a little less than 2 miles from the intersection of Rt. 195.
State Route Rt. 31 near Fish & Game Rd. Street
Police sit parked on Fish & Game Rd. or other adjacent side roads to Rt. 31. Police cruiser appears to be sitting at a stop sign in order to make a turn onto Rt. 31, but is actually shooting radar/laser.
Posted speed limit is 35 mph & the police are writing tickets for 45 mph.
Old Post Road near Old Kent Road
Today, Troop C posted a car along the main stretch of Old Post Road the road for the entire day. For the last 3 or so weeks they’ve had one of those "you’re going xx MPH" signs near the middle school and now they’ve decided to back it with local muscle. A relative of mine received a ticket here this morning for 10 over the limit (40 in a 30). This is much more aggressive than the usual "okay <15 limit" that usually applies out here. I drove back to the area this evening and found that they are backing up in people's driveways. They were completely out of sight and I only found the guy because of my detector. Without the detector, I would have been toast myself. FWIW, they are using K-band radar (same as the sign they posted by the school).
I understand the need to keep the speed low near the schools, but given that the remainder of the terrain on this road is steep rolling hills, it is no doubt a classic speed trap.
