State Route 153/East Broadway
Hwy Patrol parks in a location less than 1/8th mile from point that speed limit abruptly changes from 55 mph to 30 mph without prior warning as one enters the outskirts of Salem, enabling them to clock unsuspecting motorists the moment they hit the speed trap. There are two 30 mph speed limit signs; however, one is partially covered by a town sign ("Salem")and the next is positioned so as to be difficult to see in afternoon lighting conditions. Obvioulsy, police have found this spot to be very lucrative, as it is extremely easy to miss the signs and very little time to reduce speed by 25 mph before radar is operative.
anywhere on Rt 22, north or south for 15 miles in either direction
The State Police, there is a Barracks just south of the Village of Salem, and all Rt. 22. The place is full of Police, both locals, County Sheriff, and State. They will get you at the drop of a hat for ANYTHING. If you have out of state plates, NJ, VT, MA, your had, its that simple.
