Carolina Beach, North Carolina Speed Traps
Police love to hide at the edge of the woodline using the trees as cover when your heading north on Dow Road. They hide in the dirt parking lot of Carve Surface Works. If your heading south, you can see them sitting in the parking lot on the side of the large yellow industrial building but while heading north, you have no idea until it’s too late.
Carolina Beach police wait beside the Walgreen store as you come over the bridge into Carolina Beach. You cannot see them but they can get you. The speed limit is 45MPH, but most pick up speed as they come down from the high point of the bridge, then they nab you. Its part of their "anti-tourism" campaign. Friday evenings when the weekenders come down is the worst time.
Police hide around curve on either side of a 45mph sign.
Police/Sheriff/HiwayPatrol sit at the bottom of the tall Snow’s Cut bridge at both ends. Speed drops quickly from 55 to 45 coming into Carolina Beach and stays 45 for a long period leaving. Police always get their quota’s filled here.
