Dover, New Hampshire Speed Traps
Dover PD likes to sit in the paved area between New Bellamy Ln and Ayers Ln, just south of St. Thomas Aquinas High School. They back up just far enough so that you can’t see them until you’re too close. The posted speed limit is 40 mph.
The entire length of Back River Rd. in Dover is restricted to 30 MPH and is heavily patrolled by units of the Dover Police Department.
This trap is set up in the southbound breakdown lane (for southbound traffic only) as you bank to the right – immediately after the On Ramp traffic from exit 9 (Indian Brook Dr). Drivers that are not exiting at here, tend to merge into the right lanes to give way to both exiting And entering traffic. As a result, you may have to speed up to get into the left lane to merge with faster moving traffic already there. I have seen this on several Sunday PM drives (typical end-of-the-weekend traffic pattern).
