Savage, Minnesota Speed Traps
Traveling from Shakopee into Savage you cross a bridge at Hwy 13 north. The zone drops from 65 to 55 and you are going down hill. The cops line up at the bottom of that hill.
One of the longest running revenue scams in the state. Speed limit changes from 55 to 45 for no other reason then to nab-up unsuspecting drivers going through the worthless town of Savage. Plenty of hiding spots, lots of enforcement, TOTAL B.S. Have your insurance card and drivers licence ready…
Between Lynn Ave and the tressle bridge ( over the highway) police sit behind the bridge on either side of the hwy out of sight.
In 2003, 22 traffic tickets were issued at this one intersection in this 30 mph zone. In the first 7 and one half months of 2004, 113 tickets were issued and counting…..No traffic calming measues taken, just tickets issued.
As you enter Savage city limits, the speed on Hwy 13 drops fromm 55 to 45. Local police sit on the side of the road and will tag cars for not slowing to 45. ( even if you are traveling with the flow of traffic )
