Woburn, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Woburn police usually park in any number of business parking lots behind hedges and small trees. As cars come up Industrial road through the office parks, the police clock them. The posted speed limit is 30. The police are usually there between 8:15am and 1:00pm tagging people who are generally late for work or coming back from lunch.
I often see a police officer park his car on Cabot road in the morning rush hour and measure south-bound traffic speeds. Every time I saw him cought some drivers. Commerce Way speed regulation was set by 2001. Woburn policemen give 100% citations, no warnings. Be careful not to be cought there.
Just after you go past the light at Montvale Ave and Washington Street, headed North towards Cummings Park, the speed limit is only 25mph because there is a church crossing. Further down the road, just past a hill, the speed limit changes to 35 but for the first 250 yards the speedlimit is 25. A cop hangs out just before the change in speed and nails people regularly. He is usually there in the warmer months but I suggest never pushing your luck.

Like clockwork, just about every night, there is at least one (sometimes three or four) patrol cars sitting in the public parking lot across from 7-11. Most of the time, they are talking to each other with only parking lights on. If you try to drive by over 40, you’ll be nailed. If you look suspicious at 7-11, you’ll be followed.
