Oakdale, Minnesota Speed Traps
Speed limit is 35 going North at this point. Most traffic does at least 40 as the speed limit increases to 40 a few hundred yards down the road. I’ve seen the cops actually out of their cars, posed with a radar gun on 54th. They get you as you approach the intersection because they are fairly well hidden until you’re right on top of them. Sneaky!
The cops sit in the parking lot of the church and radar. Sometimes they’re there just to be seen so people slow down. They’re not well hidden, but they still manage to stop a good number of drivers. They can get you going either North or South at this location.
The Oakdale Police squads usually sit off the side of the road by the businesses behind Rainbow Foods and the commercial construction supply company at 7th Street and Hadley. They also sit just over the hill on Hadley toward 94. Both traps are set up to catch people traveling southbound on Hadley between 10th Street and the frontage road the runs in front of the Harley dealer and Landfall.
going east on larpenter from century toward white bear avenue there is an area near McKnight road that there are two 30mph signs close together…..and right after the second one you start going downhill and he sits in a car on the right side of the road but you cannot see him because of the hill..
Turning off Century onto Hudson Rd., east bound, parallel to Interstate 94, four miles east of downtown St. Paul, MN. Coming up an incline, the limit is posted 30mph. Continues this way along Tanners Lake for .25 miles then changes to 40mph in front of a Harley Davidson store. Police hide by a boat shop on the lake and ticket people for going 40 just several hundred yards before the speed limit increases to 40 anyway. The limit was recently reduced to 30 for construction but was never raised. The police are unrelenting and unforgiving, even though a review is reportedly underway to review the limit, which is controlled by the State of Minnesota.
