Midland, Michigan Speed Traps
New Police Officer in the city of Coleman which is North of Midland giving EVERYONE tickets for even 5mph over the limit. When driving in the Coleman area, drive the posted speed.
Watch yourself on this little stretch of road, the speed limit on this residential road changes no less than 4 ( or 5 ) times in less than a mile it goes from 30 near m20 then to 35 then to 40 then back to 35 (i think) by the time you reach Saginaw Rd by the High School. The locals drive 45 through the whole stretch and get mad at you when you obey all the changing limits, don’t submit to their pressure and keep an eye on your speedo or one of the local LEO’s will happily write you a $$$ ticket. Cops like to sit in the parking lot south of the high school and hit you with the radar as you come around the curve just before you get to Saginaw Rd.
Speed trap on Waldo Road, south of Bay City Road – heading towards Old Saginaw Road / Salzburg / Gordonville Road Bridge. Police will pull off to the side of road and shoot radar towards on-coming traffic. See them there a lot in the AM hours, as well as between 5-7pm.
cops hide in the wooded area in a emergency vehicle only drive
Trap may occur either direction. This area is newly paved and 5 lanes wide so going the posted 35mph seems absurd and its easy to do 45mph since other Rds. in Midland like this and crossing with this St. are posted at 45mph. Enforcement ususaly sits in the parking lot of a church on Saginaw Rd. between Trinity Ct & Crescent Dr., or in the Barstow Woods parking lot on Saginaw Rd. betweem St. Andrews Rd and Manor Dr. Sometimes the officers get out of the car and hand hold rador guns while hiding behind trees, especially at the park parking lot trap.
