Police will park at the end of Berkeley near the railroad tracks and catch the cars coming toward them down Berkeley. They also catch stop sign violators at this intersection.
St. Johns has a posted limit of 25MPH, even though there are no cross streets as the road parallels the railroad tracks. Often, you’ll find a trap at any of the east/west streets between Marshman & Beech Streets. Police car is usually 15-20 feet east of intersection…
BOTH directions, East and West on Central. 25 mph, seems too slow, especially if you are west bound, going down hill, but I knew the young man who was killed crossing Central before the traffic light was installed and the speed limit was reduced to avoid possible additional fatalities . Central Rd in H.P. changes to Deerfield Rd, in Deerfield. 35 mph just east and west of Rt 41 drops to 30 mph as you enter Deerfield. 30 mph all the way to Rt 94 is enforced in Deerfield.
Patrol car is usually on Berkeley Road facing East near the intersection of Berkeley and Sunnyside monitoring cars going East and West. 25 MPH posted speed limit with ZERO tolerance
