Oxford, Michigan Speed Traps
Drahner Rd before getting to Newman Rd sort of goes up and down hills. Living in the area for over 2 1/2 years I have never ran into an issue with police officers doing the same speed limit I always do coming down a hill. Within two weeks the same officer pulled me over for speeding as soon as I come down the hill. The speed limit is 40 mph. I did 45mph going down the hill it clocked me as 50-52. It’s normal for the speed to increase coming down a hill. Total speed trap. Give a person a chance to reduce their speed once they have come down the hill!
Depending on the time of day, drivers can experience a drop of 25 miles an hour in a matter of feet: from 50 to 25 .
They big public parking lots behind both the east and west side. They will cruise around there looking for simple infractions or if you pull out of lot and don’t stop completely. I was leaving dinner with some people and we got in the car and started to back up and they drove up with lights on. They made all 4 of us get out and asked “what were we doing and where were we going” Simply trolling for revenue and nothing else.
Officers will sit at the old Hampton Block building right next to the building. They are pretty much invisible to WB traffic on East Burdick between Glaspie and Mill. The Post Office traffic plays a major screen for the EB traveler. Most people continue thru that area at 45 mph and the limit is only 25 mph.
Officers will sit in the parking spaces along Lapeer road, either north or south, and watch for vehicles not stopping at the flashing red in the left turn lane.
