Holyoke, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Just past 17 exits on the right hand side just south of the mountain park overpass. They sit on the right hand side on the grass where you cant see ’em. We should outlaw speedtraps.
Police sit in the northbound construction zone with rear lights flashing and appear to be protecting the northbound construction zone, but are actually using radar on the southbound lanes. They radio chaser cars that are further down the southbound lanes to pull over the offenders going southbound.
going North on 91.. after you pass exit 14 there is a small hill. Once on top of the hill there is a statey spot right on the Left hand side of the road Before Exit 15.
he’s there a lot during the mid days and mornings.
There’s often a Holyoke cop at the top of this very long hill from Easthampton up the mountain sitting at the entrance to Mt. Tom Reservation. Why, I have no idea, since it’s pretty hard to speed going UP the mountain, but he’s there none the less. All of 141 between Cottage St. Easthampton through to I-91 is 35mph. Oddly there’s never any Easthampton cops around, even at the bottom of the mountain where there’s a very convenient place where they COULD camp. I know myself and many other people tend to go 55 downhill. Just watch out for the last curve and don’t even think about doing it in the winter. 😉
Cruisers are usually in driveways or off the road in wooded areas. Posted speed is 30 to 45 mph depending on the road. Radar is used at all different times of the day and when they are there they are fairly strict.
