Worcester, Massachusetts Speed Traps
They usually sit behind the Big Pine tree and wait for people to speed by them. its usually a cop car but sometimes they will have an UNDERCOVER van.
Driving on Massasoit from Rte 20 towards downtown, there is often a cop sitting on the right side anywhere between Alameida and Benson. They like this spot because there’s plenty of parking at the corners of the various side streets and the downhill curve from Alameida – you’ll never see them until it’s too late. I live off Sunderland and drive that route every day to and from the Pike – I see cars pulled over all the time.
Between June St and Coes Pond, Radar in Am and Pm. The road is divided by a median strip and has 2 lanes on each side. A driver has the feeling that he is on a highway but he is in a residential area. SLOW down and crawl through.
North Frontage Road is a two-lane road that serves as an access Road to I-190. As you exit the Greendale Mall, there is a sign pointing to I-190, directing you to turn right. When you turn right, you are on North Frontage Road. The initial speed limit is 40mph, within 500 feet it changes to 25mph (near the right hand exit to Norton/St.Gobain company), and then within 500 feet the speed limit changes to 35mph. Just after when the speed limit changes to 35mph, the police officer (usually a motorcycle patrol with lidar) sits on the right side of the road. As you are driving up the road, the officer is not visible until you are next to him or her.
This is an especially tricky area, as it is right before North Frontage Road forks. You merge onto I-190 on the left, or you can stay on North Frontage Road to the left to head towards Brooks street or Mountain street.
If you are going to merge onto I-190 on the left, and traffic is light, you will naturally begin building up speed to merge safely, at which point you are stopped and given a speeding ticket.
There will often be a city cop with his car parked in the bushes either in the cruiser or on foot with a radar gun looking to pull people over speeding on Coburn Ave.
