Sandisfield, Massachusetts Speed Traps
State Route 8 near Town Line
Speed Limit of 50 shortly after the "Reduced seep ahead" sign. Drops to 35 and then 25, all of this occurs over a very short distance. This trap is When heading North in Winsted and entering the town of Sandisfield Mass. We got caught doing 62 while attepmting to slow down. The policeman’s fist words to my wife were "Have you ever lost your licence before?"
Route 8 Just past Tuckers going into village
This is a tricky stretch of road. It drops from 55mph to 40mph instantly. Approximately 1/4 of a mile north of this location it drops from 40mph to 20mph to prepare operators for a very sharp corner at the New Boston store. Troopers and Officers like to sit within this stretch of road because of the drastic drop in speed limits. Watch for cruisers at the Fire Department driveway as well as a grassy field just north of the Fire Department.
