Moultonborough, New Hampshire Speed Traps
If you exit Route 25 onto Redding Lane, you will soon reach a sharp turn to the right which descends down a steep hill. The speed limit is 30 mph, though the incline is so steep that heavy application of the brakes is needed to avoid excess speed.
Very regularly, there are cops posted on the left side of the road, both at the bottom of the hill and, less frequently, beyond a ridge that follows it.
It is very easy to top 30 mph and very easy to be ticketed.
The speed limit on Route 25 is 50 MPH until you get to downtown Moultonboro. It comes up fast after the road curves and the reduced speed limit of 30 MPH is poorly marked. The Moultonboro police wait just around the bend and pull you over. Most victims are tourists in this vacation destination so they are less likely to fight the violation in court. I did and was able to reduce the penalty. This reduced speed limit is not necessary and is primarily a "revenue enhancement" for the local budget.
I saw the cop about 300 yards before JoJo’s Store, as you are going down the hill where the speed limit is 40 mph.
Speed traps on Route 25 in Moultonborough Village are relentless especially in the area of the elementary school. The cops are out there EVERY day. I have seen as many as 3 cop cars running radar in this area at the same time. The speed limit here is 30 but if you are doing 35 you are going to get stopped. Another area to watch is Moultonboro Neck Road. The local cops constantly ticket people on this road.
Police are ticket happy in this area because of the tourism (thats what they say, anyway).
