Saint Peter, Minnesota Speed Traps
Slow down coming into town coming into St. Peter on both and the south side. Officers sit inside of the 35 mph zone and get people coming into town at highway speeds.
Police sit on the North End of town and wait for unwary drivers coming in at 65 MPH into the 55 MPH zone. Police write tickets for 10 MPH and over and would write their own family members.
There is this cop car that is stationed in Mankato, but usually sits alongside 169 within 10 miles north or south of St. Peter. The trap is easy to miss because this car is forest green in color, completely stock looking and he even has little teddy bears in the rear window and window shades on side window. You dont realize its a cop until you drive right past him and see the radar gun in the window. So if you see a green Crown Victoria parked along 169, watch out.
I was stopped for speeding, but didn’t have my seatbelt on. I got a ticket for No Seat belt but just a warning for speed. Officer was nice… He said if I would have been 10 over the limit (35) I would have got a ticket for both.
They will get you making an illegal turn off of Highway 22, and Highway 99, and then pull you over and give you a ticket for no seatbelt.
