Manchester, Missouri Speed Traps
3 Stl county cops spaced apart along Manchester Rd.
20 mph speed limit and cops usually sit just over the hill or around the curve catching traffic in either direction. Connie is one long street about a mile long. I obey the speed lime cause I have been pulled over for doing 23 mph. I have lived in this area for 24 years and got one ticket and talked myself out of another.
Be warned of this location… If you are heading North on 141 you can only see a cop car in your rear view mirror after you get pulled over. There is a large retaining wall on the East side of 141 just South of the Bromfield Terrace stoplight. The police car literally backs up behind the wall and fence making it virtually imossible to see them. Be careful at night too because they are looking for more than just speeding here.
On Big Bend west of Hanna Rd between Westbrooke Village Dr (Westbrooke Apartments) and Sugar Hill Dr.
At night time Manchester will use their dark blue police cars. They will park on the pedestrian sidewalk at the bottom of the hill on the corner of Big Bend and Westbrooke Village Dr where there is no light. When coming from Hanna on Big Bend you can�t see them until you get around the curve toward the bottom of the hill and when coming from Sulfur Springs on Big Bend coming down the big hill just as you crest the next small hill you will never them setting on the sidewalk�.
Also they will park in the pedestrian sidewalk at the top of the small hill on Big Bend just before Sugar Hill Dr on either side of Big Bend in complete darkness. You will never see them until it to late.
Police cars sit on a small spur that closely parallels Carman Road and point radar down Carman Road which enables them to catch both eastbound traffic that has turned onto Carman from Highway 141 and westbound traffic that is approaching Highway 141 on Carman Road.
