Princeton, New Jersey Speed Traps
From route 27 going down Harrison road toward US 1 be careful as you aproach the bridge as the officer tends to set in a well hidden spot right before the bridge. The speed limit is 25 mph and i suggest you go no more than 30mph because they will hear no excuses.
Cop hiding behind trees on a side streets intersecting with the Great Rd. Speed limit is 25! MPH (most go 40-45) on this very busy and non-residential street.
The Great Road is a major thoroughfare, especially at rush hour, but the residents in these $1 to $5 million houses have complained repeatedly to the Township, and this is a favorite location for enforcement of a 30-mph zone in what should be 40+. Police with radar, and occasionally dummy cars and automatic signs telling you your speed. Just slow down here.
The police park at the base of the hill in a strip mall parking lot on Rt 206 near Cherry Hill Road and Valley Road. The speed limit changes immediately from 45 mph to 35 mph as you head south on 296 from Rocky Hill, NJ. As soon as you enter the 35 mph in Princeton Twp. on a downhill from a 45 mph zone they nail you. A speed of 36 MPH – 1 mph over the speed limit!!-will get you a $78.00 fine.
