Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Speed Traps
Speed limit is set far too low on these roads. Limits include 35-45 mph, but traffic generally flows at least 55-60mph. Idaho State Police like to patrol Prairie Avenue in this section.
Limits have decreased from 50 to 40mph in just a few years, while the amount of traffic and residential areas has remained virtually unchanged.
Particularly watch out for police waiting around the intersections of Hayden and Atlas, as well as Prairie and Atlas
I have seen an Idaho State patrol Officer standing on the overpass readaring vehicles and then raioing to a chase vehicle sometime three chase vehicles
officers will sit in marked and unmarked cars on w. cherry st. either side of 95. Southbound drivers are just transitioning from 45 – 35 mph, northbound drivers will be accellerating from stop at apple way. police utilize this location heavily, however my only pull over resulted in a verbal warn.
I-90 right after state line there are 3 traps. All overpasses have them off and on. They park behind the middle support of the overpass and use radar . They have been taking advantage of the construction there at night. The reduced speed limit is enforced even though there is no work going on during the day.
