New York City Police stood and held a Handheld Speed Gun pointing at cars coming off Williamsburg Bridge. The ramp had recently posted a 30mph speed limit sign. And, when you come down from the bridge that will encounter a sharp turn and a slope. The police will wait at Long Island Expressway (highway No. 495) junction to clock your speed. Be careful! When you see them ahead, you are already too late to slow down.
