Carmel, Indiana Speed Traps
College Avenue, where the road passes under I-465, a Hamilton County Sheriff or Carmel Police Officer will be parked on the north side of the embankment radaring northbound traffic.
The newly redone section of 116th Street between Meridian St. (US 31) and Rangeline Rd, should be avoided. The road is 4 lanes with median, and ridiculous 30 mph speed limit. Traffic maintains 35 – 40 mph. Daily, I encounter one or more officers on foot with radar guns, radioing to officers parked in a hidden location(s). If officers are not on foot one or more are in cars located in a partially concealed side road near the Monon Trail.
When you are entering Keystone Ave from U.S. 31 Meridian St. The speed limit is 55 mph. The flow of traffic moves 60-65. The law enforcement is hiding on the left side behind the trees in the middle median. They are usually there in the A.M. rush hour and afternnoon when the High School lets out.
On the East side of Keystone west bound. The posted speed through is 20 MPH which is way below normal. You come over some speed humps and around a little jog in the road and because there are trees there you don’t see the cop standing there right before you get to the stop light.
Several motorcycle LEO’s are sitting and picking off drivers right at the 5pm rush hour. They just opened up the 4 lanes on 116th, so I was not even sure of the speed limit (it’s 30mph). All traffic is generally going 45-55. I got nailed at 50mph.
