Memphis, Michigan Speed Traps
They will sit in the old shell station, by the huge pond coming into Memphis. On top of the hill going towards 69 on the right leaving memphis, sometimes in the large church parking lot, and by the school late at night. They end patrol at 12 week nights and 2am on the weekends. Cops have their power hats on so be prepared for a ticket if pulled over. Oh yeah, and watch out for their under cover ford explorers with a bed(can’t think of proper model but its all black.) I’ve lived in Memphis the majority of my life.
I don’t recommend speeding anywhere in Memphis. The officers have many speed traps that they rotate. By the car wash on m19, at the bottum of the hill on Boardman rd. going east and many more. I suggest keeping the cruise control set in Memphis.
Coming into Memphis from both directions on M-19, Police patrol those areas all the time and write tickets as a driver transitions from 55 to 35 MPH.
It is on Bordman heading w/b out of the city. The schools sit on the West border and is 25 mph, but quickly turns into 45 while heading out. Most motorist gun it too soon and the Memphis cops sit there and will get you all the time, because it is a school zone. And believe me, you will get a ticket.
The speed limit on Bell River Road after you leave town is 25 MPH for an unusually long distance of rural county road. There’s a 1/2 mile gap between the last 25 MPH sign and a 45 MPH sign that is approx 500 feet past a curve. As you round the curve and see the 45 MPH sign, don’t accelerate because the Memphis police park directly across from the 45 MPH sign facing south with radar. They ticket people for anything over 25 MPH between the curve and the sign. If you get a ticket here, fight it. St Clair County knows it’s a trap and will negotiate.
