First Ave @23rd St

New York City, New YorkFeb 04, 20170 Comments

Cop will sit in his somewhat unmarked car in the East 23rd St lane and goes after anyone who goes thru the upcoming red light arrow turning west onto 23rd St. He makes a u-turn to catch you.

66th Street Transverse

Heading westbound through the transverse officers are near the end on the left using Laser (Lidar) on unsuspecting drivers. This happened to me early in the morning before traffic started to build up.

Just past Van Dam Street exit on the L.I.E. (I-495) West

On random days, there is a highway car sitting on the right shoulder using perhaps LIDAR. Traffic usually backs up on the LIE going west until the last exit ( Van Dam Street) and since many cars exit at that point, traffic becomes much lighter and cars tend to pick up speed. The speed limit on this section of the LIE is 45 MPH, and many people are unaware of this, so most vehicles are at least 5-10 miles above this speed, which normally is 50 in the city and 55 outside NYC.

Northbound Hutchinson River Parkway under I-95 bridge

When you get through the toll booth on the Whitestone Bridge (Northbound) and veer left to get onto the Hutch, the road slopes downward and that’s where you pick up speed. Please pay attention, if you see multiple brake lights go off when you are driving, SLOW DOWN! NYPD highway patrol position themselves in the shadows under the bridge, so they will be difficult to spot. Regardless, the limit is 50mph, so keep it under 55ish.

queens blvd and 56th street

The speed limit is posted and locals probably know about the cameras. I am not from the city and was only passing through with a rental car. I was in the express lanes of Queens Blvd and didn’t feel like I was going fast. Ticket says I was doing 43 in a 30. I was hitting every red light and have a hard time thinking I was doing what they say I was and also there was a reasonable amount of traffic at 2PM. I find it odd that the speed limit is so low on what are the express lanes, there are a set of local lanes adjacent.
