Winnipeg, Manitoba Speed Traps
Most intersections on the Perimeter slow from 100 km/hr to 80 km/h. However, the speed limit doesn’t increase back to 100 km/h until a couple hundred yards past the intersection. An unmarked cruiser will happily tag you for accelerating back to 100 too quickly at this intersection, especially eastbound. This typically occurs when the light is green and you have momentum; if you even bothered to slow down to 80 km/h in the first place.
On the North side of Salter Bridge, cops regularly lie in wait with a handheld radar device at the intersection of Dufferin Avenue and Salter. If you travel Northward over the bridge, look for them on the right hand side of that intersection: *particularly around noon*. Usually they try to obscure themselves behind a lamp standard or street sign at the yield. Ridiculous actually.
There is a frequent speed trap located at this intersection, mainly occuring between 9 – 11:30am in the morning after most have gone to work.
Highwayman drives a supposedly stealthy newer type unmarked fleet 4 door car (dark brown).
Drivers travelling Northward through the intersection of Dunkirk Drive and St. Vital Road (a red light camera intersection) are preyed upon as they round the bend.
The parasite usually slouches down in his vehicle so he’ll be less visible to oncoming traffic (they are required by law to wear highly reflective vests).
I’ve seen this racket unfold at this location many times over a span of years.

Winnipeg Police Service sits here on the northern edge of the parking lots monitoring traffic by radar some weekdays during late morning into lunch hour. Pedestrians and cyclists are normally quite sparse and if traffic is light, it is easy (and tempting) to exceed the posted speed limit of 30 km/h.
