Anaconda, Montana Speed Traps
Hwy 1 (Pintler Scenic Route) travels from I-90 Anaconda exit to I-90 Drummand exit. Speed trap is on the west end of Anaconda. As you are traveling west on Hwy 1 thru Anaconda it’s 25, when you hit the 2 lane highway on the west end of Anaconda, it raises to only 35 for several miles, then 45, and then 70. Traveling east on Hwy 1 into Anaconda, the Hwy goes from 70 to 45 and usually has a patrol car immediately after the 45 sign. It remains 45 for several miles and then changes to 35 (still on the highway) and the hits 25 as you enter Anaconda. This is a straight, wide open stretch of highway and to post 35 for most of it and 45 for some of it is ridiculous.
Mainly winter & summer seasons, Georgetown Lake & Ski Resort approx. 16 miles west of Anaconda. More so when coming in from the lake. Speed drops from 70mph to 45mph,they often hide in trees. Well patroled area. More so a tourist speed trap.
