Coeur D'Alene, Idaho Speed Traps
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.
From Highway 95 to West of Ramsey Rd there is a school zone time from 7:30am-3.30pm. They have cops sitting in bushes and in unmarked cars daily nailing you with lidar so watch out they can pick you out of a line of cars. So go 25 or get a ticket, I did.
State Highway 95 between Ironwood Avenue and Prairie Avenue and Kathleen Avenue between Highway 95 and Ransey Road. Both of these revenue speed traps are officially reported in the Coeur d’Alene New Press as high enforcement speed traps by State/County and local city police department(s). Beware !
