Pleasant Point, Maine Speed Traps
Four mile section of route 190 east. Also, other agencies in area almost as bad.
If you are planning on traveling in downeast Maine…be careful. When you leave US Rt. 1 and unto Rt. 190 heading, watch for a hevaily patrolled stretch of road. The speed limits change frequently, so it best to keep your eye on speed limit signs. About 2 miles from US Rt. 1, you will see a sign reading, "Reduced speed limit ahead" and under it another sign reads, "Strictly Enforced". And they mean it. The local police department has 10, yes 10, cruisers of different makes and models- some unmarked with regular Maine State registration. Be mindful of this area when on business or pleasure.
Pleasant Point is a reservation community, and is one of the bigger areas of "reverse discrimination" you’ll find in Maine. If you’re not native american, don’t even think of going more than a mile over the limit anyplace on route 190. No exaggeration. Particularly in the 35MPH area that goes right through the reservation. The police force is well-funded and usually bored, so there’s quite regularly a car watching for people coming through.
