Underhill Ave, in Yorktown Heights, intersection of Rt. 129

Yorktown Heights, New YorkJun 12, 20150 Comments

If headed southwest on Underhill Avenue, toward the intersection with Rt. 129, there is sometimes a Yorktown police car parked facing against traffic in the northeast bound side, right before the stop sign, at the bottom of a hill (so you will be carrying more speed than you usually do). So they will be looking at you via their rearview mirror (and in my specific case) not using radar of any type. But they’ll hit the lights and pull you over as soon as you make the turn (either direction) onto Rt. 129. You might get a speeding ticket, or you might get an equipment violation, depending on the situation. I feel since I had a detector on the dash, the officer knew that I knew he wasn’t using radar, so his very specific (yet exaggerated, as I know exactly what my speed was and it was way below what he stated) statement to me about how many MPH I was over the limit, would not hold up. Hence he gave me “a break” with “only” an equipment violation ticket. Regardless, and I know the officer is only doing his job (and was very pleasant about the stop), something to be aware of if you travel through that area.

Baldwin Road near Mohansic Golf Course

Town recently installed two fixed radar devices that photographs the license plate of any car exceeding 35 MPH in the 30 MPH zone. Southbound radar is located south of Mohansic Golf Course as road narrows. Northbound radar is a few hundred yards south of Baptist Church Road. If you see a blue light flash as you drive by, they’ve got you!

State police will sit in the median or the side of the road facing either direction (sometimes both). You may not see them until its too late. Cars are usually marked, but sometimes unmarked cars are used.
They also sit down the side roads so they can catch people running red lights or speeding. You usually can’t see the police cars until your almost next to them, & its too late.
