Bar Harbor, Maine Speed Traps
State Hwy. 3 (Salisbury Cove)
Heading toward Ellsworth, near the hill in Salisbury Cove, cops like to sit along that Highway and wait. Either at the top of the hill near Pirates Cove Golf or at the bottom of the hill along that long straightaway. There’s a slight rise in the road along the straightaway where they can hide. By the time they come into view, it’s too late. They also like to sit by King’s Creek. Be careful along this entire route. And if you see a cop sitting there, (and successfully get past them) be sure to warn oncoming drivers by flashing your lights on and off. It’s us against them! Their entire mission is to make everyone’s lives miserable. That’s what we’re up against.
State Route 3
Speed Limit is 35-45, but you can easily do 55 plus on Rt 3 and they will pass you and get you going the opposite way every time. They are very tough on the island.
