York, Maine Speed Traps
Shore Road near Cape Neddick Lobster Pound
York PD sitting in the area of the lobster pound around the bridge. Speed limit is 25 but traffic flows much faster and it’s easy to go over without feeling like you’re speeding.
Officer actually told me he’s at that location for “speed enforcement detail.”
In the winter along the beach it is 40mph…come May it drops on a random day to 25mph and the sign is hidden by bushes….the best way to know when it has dropped is when you see the meters go up for parking you know it is tourist season.
U.S. Route 1 one mile north of Spur Rd.
I have seen police set up with radar/lidar in the parking lot of the old state garage just south of the intersection with Old Post Road. I have also seen them in the parking lot across from Anthony’s (former site of Route One Glass) on Route one.
York St. AND Long Sands Rd.
Not only do the cops patrol for speed,
this is one of the very few areas
patrolled for Y-I-E-L-D signs.
You’ve got to watch not only this intersection
but also further back, GETTING onto York Rd.
from Rte. 1 northbound.
As you’re entering York St.
a cop is sometimes parked across the street,
straight ahead of you.
York St. is 25 mph.
Smith Feild Ln & Ridge Rd –the baseball feld parking lot
you never think to look there in the but he just sits and watches then radios the car make and model. and it is before a curved hill so you naturaly focus on that and not 90 degrees to the left. *also* if you ever see the mobile sign the normaly says “buckle up for safety” or “your speed is " it has a radar in it and it logs data to find where to watch next week…it is good but my radar detecter is better. :-)"
