Lincoln, Massachusetts Speed Traps
This is a straight 4.5 mile stretch between Lincoln border near I-95/128 to West border of Lincoln. Speed limit is 45 though vehicles typically do 55 – 60. Lincoln cops regularly night patrol this area speeders and drunks.
About once a month, in the morning, as you’re driving toward 117 along the Audubon property, there’s a Lincoln PO sitting in one of two driveways at the bottom of a hill around a bend just waiting for drivers to come coasting down the hill–there are two driveway. I always be sure to slow to the speed limit (30) and crane my neck looking around the bend until I see the second driveway is clear and then finish coasting when it’s clear.
Driving east from Sudbury on Rte. 117 east, you go over a small bridge and then go around a bend. Lincoln PO is usually there waiting. If not there, then in a driveway or parking between there and Rte. 126. As stated above, Lincoln is very tough, I’ve heard about tickets for 2 MPH over 30.
Lincoln really hates ‘drive thrus’; there was an attempt a few years ago by the locals to get out during commuting hours and drive 5 mph below the speed limit.
Driving north on Rte 126/Concord St, and turn right onto Waltham Rd to take a shortcut to Rte. 117. This turns into Old Sudbury Rd.
As you come into open farm space, the road will curve to the left. About a 1/2 mile down, Lincoln PO is usually waiting w/ radar (where the houses resume). Speed limit is 30 and they’ll nail you for anything over.
these cops can be tough, they don’t even give you 10 over
