Charlotte, North Carolina Speed Traps
NCSHP Charger hides under the I-77 bridge, barely coming into view as you exit from I-77 towards I-485 Inner or are in I-485 Inner traffic. Parked next to a support pillar hidden from I-485 Inner traffic. Spotted during morning hours.
There are 6 – 8 unmarked police cars and motorcycles hiding along Community House Road as you approach the 485 bridge. They are in this location regularly.
Police car parked on median approx. one block before West Blvd. heading North.
SHP cars frequently park on the side of the on-ramp to I-485 northbound. Drivers traveling south can see them from the opposite side of the highway, but they are hidden from northbound drivers.
NCSHP park their Chargers on this urban interchange next to the bridge railing, monitoring traffic on I-77. They normally are not here during rush hour as speeding isn’t an issue during those hours. The NCDOT weight inspectors also use the SB ramp as a monitoring position. They are not visible from I-77 until you see the blue lights. Posted limit is 55, traffic flow off peak is 60-70, so it’s a gift.
