US 70 East/West Bypass near Pembroke Avenue or Glenburnie Avenue Overpasses

New Bern, North CarolinaJul 16, 20070 Comments

New Bern paper (Sun Journal) printed a large article (front page) touting LIDAR enforcement, showing officer clocking westbound traffic on US 70 Bypass from Pembroke overpass. Article stated that 35 tickets were issued the first afternoon the speed trap was in action. LIDAR trap utilizes three troopers positioned on on-ramp as interceptors with a remote officer clocking cars and gather vehicle/driver descriptions. Glenburnie exit for eastbound US 70 Bypass is a more dubious location, as it is within one mile of a transistion from 70 mph to 55 mph. Watch especially for a cruiser/suburban parked on bridge to shield/protect remote officer from oncoming (cross-bridge) traffic.

Simmons St., between Neuse Blvd. and Oaks Rd. The nature of the road makes you think it’s at least a 45 mph limit but it’s actually 35. At the time I got my ticket a few years ago, there was no speed limit sign, so you are to ‘assume’ it is 35, which is the town’s unposted speed limit. I know others who have received tickets here as well.

State Troopers constantly patrol this area, it ia 50 MPH zone, with heavy traffic during the rush hours. The use marked, slick top, unmarked chargers, dummy cars and now hide in sleect spots using a Laser Radar. Very much a hot spot. It is not reccommended to speed over 5mph there!

Where Rt. 70 changes from 70 MPH to 55 MPH. The traps are set right after the speedlimit change. There is a trap almost on a daily basis. This catches most out of town travelers driving from Rt. 95 to the Crystal Coast area.
