Halfmoon, New York Speed Traps
It’s right after the bridge where the speed limit drops from 65 to 55.
The Saratoga County Sheriffs and the NY State Police pull off in a grassy area just south of Dodge World . They pull so far off the highway its impossible to see them. Its marked 40MPH but at night all businesses are closed. They get southbounders on route 9 south in this area. At night its virtually impossible to see their car.
You cannot drive on Route 9 at any time and not see two or more police cars pulling people over for going faster than the 40MPH posted limit which was 55MPH. This is the highest money maker area in Saratoga County. For this reason noone should use this highway . It can be bypassed by using the Northway I-87. Especially at night. I no longer use the walmart , advance auto,restaurants,garden center and never drive in this area. Its well worth it for residents and visitors alike to shop elsewhere than in Clifton Park-Halfmoon. There are more Sheriffs cars and NY State Police cars in this area than any other part of the state since it is so lucrative. Clifton Park and Halfmoon rely heavily on traffic fine revenue to pay their employees.
