Franklin, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Police will sit in the Kennedy School parking lot watching traffic from both directions. Enforcement will increase as the opening of school grows closer.
The cruisers will sit at the entrance to Garelick Farms and near the T-Station and they use RADAR and LIDAR. Very strict and almost always write the $$$$$$ citation.
Beware of this stretch of King St.; the cruisers (yes, they May use more than one !) are often parked in one of the entrance/exit ways to the condo complex.

Often times, the police will have one unit right at the condos, while a 2nd car is parked somewhere further up or down the street – it is the Worst Speed Trap I know of Anywhere in the area.
Police often hide on the side streets off of Forest St. The 30 MPH speed limit is not authorized, nor is any speed limit authorized by MassHighway per a letter I recieved from the MassHighway Commissioner.
