Newton, Iowa Speed Traps
The police will sit in the church parking lot across the street from Berg at night and catch people speeding south on E 19th Street N. It’s also a school zone, and sometimes people will run the red light after the pedestrians cross. Be careful! There could be some hefty fines because of the school zone, and I see someone caught just about every night.
Newton Police will sit in a dark shadow just behind the stop sign facing the Park. When people leave the park they tend to speed down the hill going north towards 8th avenue. Watch Out They Will Get Ya! (West 3rd Street South)
Police sometimes sit in a dark beside the brick wall at the entrance of the high school. They sit back just enough that you can�t see them and will get you running that stop sign. (East 4th Street South)
(South 8th Street East)
The Interstate through that area is in the Newton city limits. Newton police love to sit in the median and pick off drivers going more than 4 to 6 mph over the limit.
