Carmel, New York Speed Traps
I84 between exits 18 & 19 at the bottom of the hill, mile marker 64.5 in the middle. Mostly set up for east bound traffic but have seen them set up for west bound traffic.
A Patrol Car waits for the cars that go over 30 m/p/h. Sometimes pinting to Fair St, Sometime pointing to Tawners Rd.
Rush hour in the morning and afternoon. Is easy for the cop because all drivers are late for work or want to get home from work.
There are 2 traps under a mile of each other on Fair St. The First one is coming down the Hill from the High School Just before you enter the S Curve. A Sheriff will sit in the Dirt Lot at the entrnce to the Fred Dill Nature Preserve. I often see the sheriff pulling over the High schoolers. The second trap is just after the S curve, A sheriff will sit in the entence to the Water works and clock speeders coming down Fair St from Hill and Dale etc. I beleive the posted speed Limit is 30 and drops to 20MPH in the s curve.
Speed limit drops from 45MPH to 30 MPH on Rt 311 west of Rt. 84. This is a favorite spot for state and local police.
After Shoprite and Dills you will be going up a hill at the top of the hill you will start going right back down to a stop light. The police stays right after the top of the hill on the right side before the light. Stay below 45 (posted speed limit)
