West Islip, New York Speed Traps
Sheriff is usually sitting in the parking lot of the empty building.
This is mostly going eastbound on the Southern State right before exit 40 (Robert Moses exit). Right where the trees end in the median there is a space for a trooper to hang out and no one suspects them to be there. I have only seen them twice there, but it was 2 consecutive days in a row.
In West Islip, between Robert Moses Causeway and Udall Road, heading west, there is usually a cop waiting on the grass to pull you over. They are in full view, but can spot you from nearly a half mile away where you can barely see them! Someone always gets pulled over in that area.
Well I’ve seen this one twice, so thought I’d inform everyone. There’s been a Suffolk County marked car (unknown if it’s Highway Patrol or not) in the median right as you go under the Robert Moses Causeway. I’ve only seen him late at night at the end of the month..looks like a quota thing. Haven’t seen him pull anyone over when I’ve gone by, but just in case, here’s the warning. Just remember, the speed limit on the service road is 45, not 55 like Sunrise Hwy itself.
