Worcester, Massachusetts Speed Traps
On the curved ramp to get on 146 S from 290, right where the curve ends and 146 begins, on the right in the breakdown area MSP on foot with radar/laser guns. Observed 2014-05-29 at 17:30.
This one is a stop sign trap. You’ll get a ticket even if you stop at the stop sign and then try to proceed ahead safely, slightly pausing to be able to clearly see around parked cars up on Bourne St. to make sure it is clear, then through the large intersection to get over to the far right lane connecting onto West Boylston St. Cop coming down Bourne St. will ticket you $50 saying you stopped in the middle of the intersection only, even though he could not have been able to see you at the stop sign where you actually stopped.

Doing “Crosswalk Enforcement,” where one cop sits in the middle of the road, and then makes like he’s going to just casually walk in front of your car without looking. If you don’t stop, there are cops a few blocks down to flag you and give you a $200 fine for just that. If they use radar and catch your speed as well (limit = 30, people usually doing 45+), watch out.
The cop likes to near the 7-11 store or in the general vicinity. He also likes to nail you for the unexpected red light coming over the new bridge.
