Bayside, New York Speed Traps
School zone, 25 mph
The Clearview Expressway in its entirety is notorious for being a speed-trap. Motorists who use it frequently know not to drive above 50 mph (the speed limit). Hiding areas for marked and unmarked police cars are many. You will be well advised to keep your speed at 50mph as even a 53mph will get you a ticket. Do not get you hopes high when you see someone getting a summons, as there may very well be another patrolman waiting for you 500 to 1000 feet ahead.
There is often a marked police car sitting on the entrance ramp at 26th avenue. He is not visible from the highway, as the ramp is blocked by an overpass and bushes, but he has a good view of the traffic heading toward the bridge of the Willets Point exit. I have not been caught there, but I have seen several motorists pulled over at this spot.
Marked and unmarked cars, wait at bottom of on ramp from Northern Blvd. Vehicle sits perpendicular to traffic so officer can aim laser from his window. City had area paved just for this purpose. he’s there everyday. When he’s not there he’s probably writing a ticket a few hundred feet up the road.
Police cruisers are present at side of road, usually partially hidden by overpass structure
