State Highway Rt 23 near State Route From Catskill to East Windham

Catskill, New YorkDec 28, 20070 Comments

Rt 23 (4 lane section) between Catskill and Cairo are the heaviest enforced road in NY State. Even worse then Toll-Free 90. They also heavily patrol Rt 23 (2 lane) from Cairo to East Windham. There are 50 state troopers, Sheriff, and local police who join in the feeding frenzy. Almost all the red lights are also timed wrong. They should be 5.5 seconds, but they have been recently changed them to 4.0 seconds, so that they can ticket more people. On a busy holiday weekend, you can see 1 cop every 1/2 mile. Keep your speed 60 MPH or under. If business is slow, they pull people over to see if they can find something during the stop. It happens to me at least once a year. My employees get stopped coming into our business 3-4 times a year. Some sit on favorite spots, while most run the road and catch people in both east and west bound lanes.

I know multiple people who have been stopped for speeding headed north on Rt 9W as you leave the town of Catskill. Trooper sits under the Railroad bridge and gets you as you start to speed up approaching the 55mph sign.

Village of Catskill. As you cross over the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, going West. The Bridge is posted for 40 MPH on the East side in Columbia County, at the middle of the bridge you cross over into Greene County, the posted Speed changes to 25 MPH. The speed signe are SMALL and there is no warning of the change. A Village police officer was sitting on the Greene Co. side pulling two cars over at a time and issuing speeding summone. He was using rader to clock the cars crossing, sitting just pass the bridge toll plaza.
