Bozeman, Montana Speed Traps
For reasons that can’t be anything but a trap, the town drops the speed limit for about four blocks on 7th from 35 to 25. Police sit in motel parking lot about half way into the zone.
Police ususally sit on the side of the road or even on the east edge of the boulevard (facing east), catching people heading eastbound. This used to be a 25mph road, but is now a 35mph zone.
Also, this is a good spot for motorcycle police to set up.
(Far end) East Main St going west. 45 mph to 25 mph while going down hill as you enter town.
Going out of Bozeman on I90 headed towards Billings. Just as you leave town there is an "authorized vehicle only" turnaround. I usually see two highway patrols talking there.
A black and white sits a block or so in distance away from 19th Ave on the drive that leads to the Marsh Laboratories (a right off 19th if heading south). This is just past the Lincoln (road to campus; a left) / 19th intersection, and just before the Kagy/19th intersection. Speed limits are posted and pretty reasonable, but many people speed up here as 19th’s limit increases past the intersections–especially if they see a green light still at the Kagy/19th light. After dark is the worst time; there is almost always a car there, especially on weekend nights. This is one of the most constant but least known about edge-of-town speedtraps.
