Elizabeth City, North Carolina Speed Traps
State Trooper sits between Chicken Corner Rd. and Horseshoe Rd in the mornings, he hides in the median grass behind bushes. Slow Down!
Going north on 17 through the city, cop sits behind the PNC bank. Suggest going around the city on the 17 bypass (DO NOT STOP IN THE CITY)
State cop hides in the median under the overpass and in a dip that conceals his car.
I am originally from this area, but thankfully got the hell out of there.
One of their tactics is to have an officeer up in a bucket pretending to be someone with the electric company, he is actually shooting radar at the cars below and will radio to a car up the road to issue the ticket. Another tactic they use is to have an officer pretending to be a homeless person-he is also shooting radar and will radio to another officer. They will issue a ticket
for 1mph over the limit. I haven’t received a ticket there but i know people who have (parents, friends). Oh well, guess you can sell drugs, not use turn signals and drive 10 under in the left hand lane, but you get a ticket for
going 1mph over the limit. Avoid this town…there is no reason to go there.
