Midland, Michigan Speed Traps
The police hide in the cul d sac across from the apartment complex.
The speed limit drops from 35mph to 25mph and there is never any shortage of city police making traffic stops along this stretch.
Cop has been sitting there on weekdays looking for “speeders” on Bay City Rd. The road is marked 40 mph but SHOULD be 45 or 50. They aren’t protecting anyone, just being a nuisance.
New Sign that appears to be a construction sign with blinking light says 45 mph, next sign at left, say 45 mph approx 80 yards, . Office parked at bottom of curve and hill on cross street, with radar.
Saginaw County Sheriff (black car) was using laser in cruiser heading north towards Rt 20. This is a straight, rural road with very little traffic. Speed limit is 55 but most drivers travel 65 to 75. This road is on the county line between Gratiot and Saginaw County. I was on the Gratiot county side, heading south but cruiser was on the Saginaw County side. Ticketed at the end of the month for going 10-15 miles over. Deputy claimed I was driving 78 and wrote the info on the ticket. Ticket fine: $105
