East Bridgewater, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Traffic unit sits in parking lot of either Bible Church or St. John’s and grabs motorists heading West on Central. MPH zone drops from 35 to 25 at this point when heading WEST on Central. Radar signal picked up just past Mitchell Middle School (on left). Be ready!
Gated entrance / drive to a landfill on west side of Thatcher Street. Unit sits and grabs motorists heading south (usually) in this area. Non-residential on the side of speed trap, houses on opposite side.
Heading west from route 18 on Highland (downhill), East Bridgewater Police sit and wait on right side in a paved driveway (35 MPH zone). This is the back entrance for “F-1 Outdoors” and the gate is usually closed / locked. Plymouth County Sheriff’s SUVs sit here occasionally and await radio calls from Plymouth County B.C.I. believing they can intimidate the naïve public. These deputies do not possess M.G.L CHAPTER 90 motor vehicle powers, and thus cannot initiate traffic stops, so don’t sweat in this case.
Plymouth Street, between the Green and Route 106 South / West. This road passes by the back entrance of the East Bridgewater Junior / Senior High School. The zone is 25 MPH and seems ridiculous. Should be 30-35, and 20 MPH with lights when students are arriving / leaving school. Keep the throttle at 20-25. It is VERY easy to exceed the limit here. Patrol unit usually sits on a dirt shoulder which is on the same side as the school. More likely to get bagged in daytime and during school year.
