Acton, Massachusetts Speed Traps
The initial speed limit on School Street traveling east is 30MPH. It changes to 25MPH just after Pond Ridge Road then a few hundred yards later it changes back to 30MPH (when the road becomes Laws Brook Road). The terrain and density is the same so I don’t see a reason for the change from 30 to 25 and back to 30, except for the police car that sits there at the 25 MPH zone and picks people up.
Common parking spot for the police not able to see them because of where trees are positioned
Acton PD will sit atop the Cementery Road Facing either Direction, Mainly Towards South Acton. If not atop their at the entrance at the bend. Watch your speed around the corner. I’ve seen anytime, but mainly just after dark cause you can’t see them on the hill.
Trap is just before the Acton recycle entrance. Enforcement is primarily on weekends and non-rush hour. Road is a 4 lane debuted highway with a 50 to 100 foot medium strip. Rush hour traffic moves at 65-75 mph while the speed limit is 45mph.
On hill 1/2 mile after traffic light accross from Transfer Station.
