Rochester Hills, Michigan Speed Traps
An Oakland County Deputy is sometimes parked on the south side of Avon watching eastbound traffic as it approaches the hill to go down towards Dequindre Road and Yates Cidear Mill. There are also deer in that immediate area especially at night, so it is best to take it easy through that small stretch of pavement.
The State Police park in the furthest corner of the Cul-de-sac on Charlwood where it circles and turns into Ainsley. Just before you come out to Tienken Road. You don’t see them as you are turning the corner. As soon as she ticketed me she leFort Guess she got the quota for the day. I was ticketed for going 5 MPH over . My actual was 6 MPH over. Hadn’t had a ticket in years either. Didn’t matter to this state trooper.
Walton Blvd has recently been expanded to a sprawling divided highway that makes speeding a no-brainer. There is actually a specific driveway for police cars to park just past the East Oakland Drive entrance into Oakland University. So going east-bound on Walton, you’ll come up over a hill, and you can’t see the police car until you get there, at which point it’s usually too late. I used to live across the street from this location and usually about once a day there would be a police car parked there.
Oakland County Sheriff’s Deputies will sit behind the bridge pillars and use radar on traffic. They can only point their guns one way, but be careful: The guns DO have instant on. They like catching us with radar detectors.
Going eastbound on Walton Blvd., soon after you cross into Rochester Hills from Auburn Hills, there is an entrance to Oakland University(The one just before the entrance to Meadowbrook Music Hall). Located a couple of feet past the entrance is a small patch of cement next to a tree, there sits an Oakland county squad car. The trap is set at any time from morning rush hour to late night, and the officer has instant on radar and another officer uses a black car at night for easy hiding – so be careful. The posted speed is 45mph and they usually look for anything over 50mph.
