Eastbound @ Marion – 1400’s

As mentioned in another posting, the Brookline Police face oncoming traffic in the open parking spaces in the median along the Green line tracks. I lived at 1455 Beacon St the past year and as you leave Washington Sq heading East towards Coolidge Corner and Kenmore Sq., there is a small hill and it’s easy to pick up speed. Although there are 3 full lanes of traffic and no lights for about a half mile, the speed limit is only 30mph and the officers turn off all of their lights ( no yellow running lights ) They go after everyone and they ticket hard !

Brookline police set up in available parking spaces in the median. East of Coolidge Corner it’s on the Westbound side and vice versa. The Marion St. trap has been mentioned. I was nearly got nailed on 2/3/01 near St. Mary’s. The cop grabbed the taxi that accelerated faster than me.

West Roxbury Parkway near Putterham Mdws Golf Club and Putterham Circle

W Roxbury Pkwy is divided and 2 lanes in this short segment as you approach the traffic circle, but the speed limit is only 35. I have seen numerous cars pulled over on this stretch. Once I saw the trap set up in the parking lot of the Golf club on the right travelling NW toward the circle. (You crest a slight hill and curve as you approach). In the SE direction I picked off a cop parked in a private driveway using K-band radar. Brookline cops tend to leave their K-band on or maybe they lack instant-on capability. "Your speed is …xxx" units use X-band in Brookline whereas they usually have K-band in Boston.
