Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Speed Traps
Just past Ramsey, the speed limit increases from 35 to 45. However, if you turn onto Prairie road at Ramsey, you wouldn’t know this and the only speed limit sign you see says 45. This means if you accelerate off the turn to 45, you will be pulled over for accelerating before the sign. The cop hides in a driveway just past the intersection.
Heading East on W. Marie Ave. from Ramsey Rd. the speed changes from 35 to 25. The only sign eastbound is behind a tree before you get to the turn in to WinCo. There is no other speed sign for two blocks or about half-a-mile. The police will be at the top of the hill on the left with a radar gun. I was going 34 and he wrote me up for 36mph.
Past Riverstone headed west on Seltice, the speed limit is 35. There is a hill that you descend and Atlas goes off to the right. Then the speed limit jumps to 45. The sheriff likes to sit on the Eastbound turn off for Old Atlas Road and stop people for going 45 right before it changes, so don’t use the hill to speed up, I’ve seen the sheriff pull tons of people over.
At Ramsey getting onto the 90 there is a construction zone speed zone posted at 55, this speed zone is inconsistent as you travel further down 90, The resume speed sign is moved frequently although they have cones set as far as Liberty lake w/speed signs of 70 mph. The highway patrol hides at the rest station at mile marker 8 just before hwy 41 interchange. Be careful and pay attention. I was pulled over after the resume speed sign and the court will always favor the hwy patrol. Most of the time construction is Not in progress, I feel this is a speed trap to pay for the construction. And when will they fix the pocket holes? This is ridiculous and unsafe. When will the highway and roads services be accountable too.
The newly widened to 5 lanes section of Ramsey Rd between Hayden & Prairie Ave. is posted 35 but traffic tends to go 45. Police hide in a long driveway on the west side of the road and near Wilber on the east side.
