Harford, Maryland Speed Traps
Interstate 95 near Mile Marker 71
The state police will sit on the NB left shoulder, right after the "emergency turn around" and will get vehicles in any lane using laser. Please be careful! Getting a ticket is not your biggest concern in this area. These guys will walk right out into any of the 4 lanes to pull a car over and it becomes insanity on the roads when people start slamming on the brakes to avoid hitting them. I have been in the right lane of the four lanes and have run out onto the right shoulder to avoid running into a car or truck in front of me, slamming on their brakes (and yes officer, I had plenty of distance between me and the vehicle in front and yes I am doing 65).
There will usually be 2-4 marked and unmarked cars working this area. The sad thing is that a few miles away in Edgewood, the area is overcome with gang violence including drugs, murders, other crime. These police officers would be better spent saving lives in Edgewood than putting my life in danger on a very safe road.
