Owego, New York Speed Traps
OPD Sitting in front of Pumpelly Glen
Tioga Co sheriffs latest spot – likes to get you as you crest the hill going west over the 45 MPH speed limit. Owego/Tioga Co must be having revenue problems since they have been relentless in the last few weeks (May-June 09).
Tioga Cty Sheriffs like this location – can nab both east and west bound traffic. There are actually 2 spots within 100 yards of each other – both are on the North side of the road.
With a long straight away in front of him, the Tioga Cty Sheriffs Deot likes this spot for west bound traffic.
Exit 65 off of Rt. 17 to Owego is a sort of "uphill" exit that leads you to a bridge to cross – either to the right or leFort But – the exit also goes straight, over the bridge (at a light) and then "downhill" so that you can drive right back onto Rt. 17. The police often hide on this "downhill" reentry ramp and cannot be seen at all.
