Whitman, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Traffic unit sits and does inspection sticker snag / speed enforcement esp. on motorists heading WEST and from Whitman round-a-bout (rotary). Cross over railroad tracks, heading west on Essex Street and radar signal is detected at this point (30 MPH zone).
Same traffic unit officer in SUV (known but not allowed here) rotates locations, but concentrates on the following during 8 AM to 4 PM shift: Sits on Raynor and all side streets, Park ( just east of tracks in old Regal liquor store lot location on right), Commercial and Stetson (Whitman Housing), and Washington and Victoria (hides on Victoria in this 20 MPH zone and just behind fence). The Raynor Street is 30 MPH, Park St. track grade-crossing is 25 MPH. Detector / scrambler hit as far west as gas station on Park. Commercial Street is 30 MPH.
Arguably one of the highest speed enforcement towns in the entire country, Whitman police hide anywhere and everywhere. But especially on Route 27 = Temple Street, between Route 18 and the Brockton line. Temple Street was originally 4 lanes; but was reduced to 2 lanes about 10 years ago. Mostly straight and flat, the 40 mile per hour speed limit is difficult to maintain. Recommend use of cruise control. Also, No Warnings! That is police department policy, no matter age or driving record.
they sit on whitten ave which is off of raynor
There are many whitman cops posted through rt 18 starting from Skate Town to Wendy’s. The speed limit goes from 40 to 45 to 40 to 30 so pay attention because the route is relatively smooth and fast. So don’t get the urge to speed.
