Walpole, Massachusetts Speed Traps
The cops sit there in there car backed up so you don’t see it with the lights off and hide. it’s all about revenue and they are the most agressive and nasty bunch of cops you will find.
Notoriously dangerous streets for speed traps and speeding tickets. West St starts off as Main St in Norfolk, MA where it is posted at 35 MPH. Speed limit drops to 30 at the Walpole line and eventually drops to 25 MPH and then 20 MPH near the little league ball fields. Speed limit north of Norfolk St intersection is 25 MPH due to narrow passages under old train bridges. Norfolk St going west is not posted. West St going west is not posted until after the second train bridge. Norfolk St going east has only an advisory sign posted at 30 MPH. Drivers beware! This is a busy set of town-to-town streets with very low speed limits and constant radar speed traps. It’s almost a sure speeding ticket for anyone all alone on the road.
There are always cops parked at the back of the lot out of view from traffic in both directions.
Motorcycle cop sits under low branches of the pine trees on the east/south side of High St. That guy doesn’t fool around so don’t bother trying.
Walpole Police Officer stands on the side of the road, next to his motorcycle with his radar or lidar gun out, clocking cars coming both directions. There’s a 20 mph school zone nearby, so sometimes he’s at the top of the hill near the school zone. Other times he’s at the bottom of the hill.
Signs say the speed limit is “under 30 mph”, but my GPS believes the limit is 25.
