Cops hide cruisers amongst parked cars on side of the road. Cops on foot walk out and wave cars down to give tickets. Speed limit is 35mph, traffic actually flows at about 45-50mph.

Western Ave outbound @ Central Square

As Western Ave leaves Central Square, just past the police station, you will often find city police standing with radar. The limit is 25 mph, but cars often accelerate out of the square; hence, the trap.

Memorial Drive, 200 yards West of Mass. Ave.

I live right across the street from this speed trap, and can often watch it from my living room or dining room on a sunny afternoon. I once got pulled over (50 yards from my front door) for "going the wrong way down a one-way," which I was NOT doing, and finally managed to convince the Statie, who was enraged that I had shown him to be wrong. They pull people over 4, 5 at a time when they’re in form. Admittedly, people drive too fast here, and even once an acquaintance was KILLED by a speeding car near here (at night, and they NEVER set the trap up at night, when the drunks are out). But when these guys want to pull someone over, they WILL find plenty of people, innocent and not.

The trap is usually set up at 1/101 Main Street and gets people speeding over the Longfellow Bridge from Boston. The trap is often operated by the State Police, sometimes by the Cambridge Police.
