Cape Carteret, North Carolina Speed Traps
The trap is set up for east bound traffic on Hwy-24. The trap is just after you clear the series of three traffic lights just past the McDonalds and as you head into what seems to be a clear open road. They hid on the left side of the road in either the Real Estate Office or just beyond in a school parking lot. This should be 45mph at this point but is left at 35mph just to trap the unaware. The target is unfamiliar beach traffic or Marines going to Camp Lejeune or Cherry Point.
Between Cape Carteret and Bogue ther is a school zone there that is marked 35 all the time and you will see the speed limit sign change from 55 down to 35 without warning. This is a four lane road that has just been built there and they need to give more warning. Be careful.
