Albany, New York Speed Traps
A rural road with very few entry/exit points. While it does warn you of a speed zone, it is straight down a hill. Before you “enter” Thatcher Park there is a sign that says “Speed Zone Ahead”. Take note of it! It’s an agonizing 30 MPH on a road that should be at least 40-45 MPH, and it is very easy to go over 30 MPH down a straight hill. You’ll be caught on radar before you can slow down.
There is a Seven mile Construction zone between exits and Troopers are waiting on both ends of it. Watch your speed from beginning to end. Fines are double in work zones and they will write you a ticket.
I work in Albany and have to drive this route every day at 1-2pm. for at least 5 out of the 7 days in a week, there is always a police car in the turnaround nailing people where the speed limit drops from 65 to 55mph. been driving this route for 2 years, and boy oh boy, they are consistent.
