Belchertown, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Cops hang out at two locations around the Mill Valley golf course – heading East parked under a tree right before the golf course, and heading West parked in the decrepit store that says "Atkins Farm" on the sign. The speed limit in this area varies rapidly, quickly dropping from 45mph to 35 right at the speed trap. I got a written warning after I told the cop honestly that I thought I was driving 50-55 in a 45 zone.
Heading South towards Bondsville, you’ll pass Micheal Sears Rd on your leFort About a mile ahead on the left you’ll pass new house construction. SLOW DOWN! They sit right around the corner on your right half in residential driveway on the corner of Pine St (also on right)
The posted speed on the Route 9 stretch through Belchertown quickly varies from 35-40-45-35 again etc. The police car backs into the parking lot of the diner, unseen until you pass them. I was "caught" @ 5:45 a.m. when only one other car was on the road, so they are there at any time and do write a ticket, not a warning.
All along Rt. 181 (and Rt. 9). Keep speed down any time after dark. A cruiser will be moving, maybe with other cars. After dark you WILL NOT see it coming. A triggered unit will be used for an instant, thus there will be no warning.
