13th Street Near Camel’s Back Park

Boise, IdahoAug 26, 20120 Comments

Where you’re going eastbound on Hill Road, where it turns right into 13th street by Camel’s Back. In the middle of the day, there’s usually a motorcycle cop on the left hand side of the road, just before you reach Heron St. The speed limit is 20 MPH through there.

On Main (one-way street) between 27th and 30th

The cops that I would regularly see waiting in the wings on eastbound-only Fairview in the same general vicinity (i.e. once you cross over the bridge) seem to now focus their attention on westbound-only Main. Once you pass the signaled intersection of Main/27th, look off to the left. I’ve seen motorcycles stationed in the parking lot for the business on that corner as well as cars in the vacant lot on the corner of Main/30th.

Generally, all of Boise!

It is true that many of these traps described herein are patrolled heavy. Boise like every city is dependent upon tickets for balancing its budget. So is the state of Idaho, but if you drive the limits which are reasonable posted, or say 5 or so miles over the hour, my opinion is that most speed limits are reasonable. Just be careful and drive them! Especially watch for yellow lights blinking on major streets which indicate a school crossing and drive 20 or you will get a ticket. I did, $86 for doing about 35 in a 20 school zone I just didn’t notice.

1-84 heading west from Gowen Rd exit through Nampa

Road construction that is pretty much completed, but motorcycle cops hang out there almost every time I travel that stretch (twice a day). They especially get people when no construction workers are out (like on weekends and nights)

Curtis and Orchard southbound

Coming from Curtis and turning onto Orchard there is an uphill grade which is posted at 30 mph. Cops will sit on the corner and ticket you going up the hill. I was doing 35 and the cop said I was doing 50. He didn’t use a gun, he just estimated and $175 later is not right.
