New Bern, North Carolina Speed Traps
Pine Tree Drive from Amhurst Blvd (also a speed trap) to Dr. MLK, Jr. Blvd.
NBPD hides in the ditch with a handheld RADAR near Laura Lane. He sends one of his buddys to give you the citation.
New Bern’s newest Speed Trap along Broad Street from 1st Street to Queen Street. What was 35mph has been reduced to 25! Yes a full 10mph reduction. Like New Bern doesn’t have enough Speed Traps already. Clearly they are doing everything possible to keep the Massive Police Force busy making money.
25 mile per hour speed limit on a road that could be traveled at 35mph safely, New Bern City Police will DEFINITELY pull you over for going as little as 5mph over the speed limit. It decreases from 35 to 25 at the 5 points area where Queen St intersects and continues at 25mph all the way to the end. Since the New Bern Police Department is visible down Queen St from that intersection, there are police frequently ready to ticket you.
A slow down campaign is done here twice maybe up to four times a year, you drive around the corner then BANG its a police checkpoint, they park their cars on Dillahunt St so you can’t see them, many people up to hundreds in the last couple of years have been ticketed and even arrested ( driving without license) here, be careful especially around holidays and school opening in August.
The police officer hide in the parking lot of Berne Village behind the low brick wall facing on coming traffic. The posted speed limit is 25 MPH.
