Ashley, Indiana Speed Traps
This would be a “stop sign” trap. Since the suggested idea of a speed trap is the police observe an area for people breaking the law, as you exit I-69 there is a stop sign posted and the police, if you can believe this, pull people over for not stopping. Kinda like the police pulling people over for speeding. I love the last one, I was going 52 in a 40. Admits he was speeding in a posted 40mph area and then bitches about it.
On 400 West about 250 yards north of the railroad tracks. They like to sit there all blacked out and get you as you are coming into town.
The town police like to sit behind the sign next to the lawn and garden shop next to 4. East Bound traffic has no way of seeing them. They then pull out and pull the subject over. They use the "I paced you @xx speed" meaning they don’t have a radar ticket to show you. Officers will sometimes "hide" in a church parking lot directly across from there so that west bound traffic can’t see them. I was a victim of the latter method. Was told I was doing 30mph over the 40mph zone when in fact the officer hadnt even got up behind me until after I had reached the 55mph zone. My top speed in the 40 just before the 55mph sign? About 52. I was doing 60 when the officer was behind me in the 55 zone.
