Troy, New York Speed Traps
Just north of the Hedley Building on River St is a U-Haul lot that is typically empty. It is directly across from the Hedley’s north parking lot. TPD sits here watching speed in the 30 zone and also watching the traffic light at River and Hutton St. When you’re traveling southbound on River St, the cruiser is obscured by a building.
TPD sits in Fire Dept parking lot on 6th Avenue watching southbound traffic traveling toward Federal Street. 30 zone. From this position, they also have an eye on the traffic light on Jacob Street and 6th. Don’t run this light. When they’re not parked, patrol is still heavy so be careful.
TPD sits on little side road approx. 100 ft from end of bridge into Troy. Speed drops from 55 to 30 as you cross bridge. Seem to mostly target HVCC students on their way to school.
Cops lurk in driveways and pick out of state license plates to ticket from the flow of traffic. Be careful if you have a non NYS plate in front of you they , they jump out into the traffic to print out their tickets.
Rt. 142 Runs from Top of Hoosick To RT. 40 Speed limit starts at 40 then picks up to 45. As you enter Troy it drops to 30. Troy Police love to sit in the pull off in front of Plank RD. Sat. and Sunday is a big day
