Lockport, New York Speed Traps
The speed limit is 35mph. Going east, you come to a small rise. Over the rise, on the north side to your left, sit state troopers just where the speed limit increases to 55mph. They will nail any car going over 40 mph.
What makes this a speed trap is that the area is so wide open, many of the houses sit far back from the road, and the canal is on the south side so going 35mph seems very sluggish.
