Elmira, New York Speed Traps
State and sheriff sit in vacant building parking lot between
tall bushes. Will even pull you over for quote – I thought you
had something in your hand.
State and Sheriffs dept’s park along side the road near the the water shed below the roads crest. you come upon them at the last minute. the speed posted is rediculously low for a very rural area. your more likely to hit deer than anything else. definitley the sole purpose is to make money.
Newly renovated medians give them three good "No U Turn" turnarounds to hide/park at & tag-team in a 4 mile stretch. Speed limit just went to 65, so it’s a little better but they’re still strict with it (Seat belts & cell phones too).
West Elmira Police will sit at the West/Elmira line watching for those leaving WEST Elmira (eastbound) above the posted 30 mph speed limit.
