Lowell, Massachusetts Speed Traps
the police hide at this intersection to not only catch speeding, but if you do not stop for 3 seconds at the sign you will be tagged.
The officer will be behind the trees after the brick building to get you heading towards Aikin St from the Bridge St intersection. As of 8/25/2017 this is also a Construction Zone. Do not judge your speed by the car in front of you as the office will pick whomever he wants not necessarily the first car above the speed limit.
There is an elementary school on Gorham street, across the street is a cemetery. The police car usually parks on one of the cemetery access roads, which hides it from traffic on Gorham St. Speed limit changes from 30 to 20mph at school zone. An officer with radar will walk into street to stop offenders- there are a ton of children in the area and speeding through the area is not wise but is common since Gorham is a major route for many commuters. Be aware.
Traffic patterns at this intersection are horrible. Cops wait on north side of Mammoth for cars that change from the left lane to the right to go straight, even done in a safe manner, with a blinker, before the intersection. Two cops in one car just waiting to trap people.
When heading towards Andover St the police sit on East Merrimack st waiting for folks to get stuck at a red light. The problem is that Nesmith st. merges into one lane so cars always get stuck at a red light waiting for room to merge….easy pickings for the revenue generators.
