Arlington, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Either coming off Rt. 2 East and approaching Rt. 60 or using the access road heading east from Park Ave as an on ramp for Rt. 2 East, officers have been using radar for the traffic heading down the hill. Cars are either coming off the exit at highway speeds or picking up speed to merge on to the highway, yet posted speedlimits at 30, I believe.
The officer sits in his car on Westmoreland Avenue, across from the reservoir, usually monitoring traffic coming from Lexington. Enforcement is stepped up typically in the springtime before the reservoir opens and pedestrian traffic is increased
State Police setup under the bridge at the base of the hill.
Police vehicle will power down and wait on the side of the road in a poorly-lit spot. Use caution 7pm-2am. (I take the T but I see them there all the time. Plus I have to cross this road so please drive carefully. =)
Patrol car takes advantage of 400 yard stretch without streetlights to hide in the dark at this intersection(mostly near sunset). Will also hide behind bushes on side streets on the right as you approach Church Street. Speed limit of 30 mph stongly enforced.
