Raleigh, North Carolina Speed Traps
Buffaloe Rd is a wide street but in this sector it drops from 45 to 35 MPH. If you are heading toward Capital Blvd from New Hope Rd, the police will be waiting for you after the first curve, clocking you either from the opposite direction or hidden on top of the sidewalk on the right. Since the speed limit on Bufaloe Rd and New Hope Rd is 45 right before entering this street, it is a classical speed trap because the street is wide and drivers may be unaware of the new limit. I’m surprised no one had posted this before, after all, money hungry cops use this trap on a daily basis.
There’s a speed trap in this area quite often because it’s a great money maker – cop hides behind a tree at the bottom of a hill shooting radar for his cohorts who line up down one of the residential side streets waiting for their victims. Of course they’ll set up in an area that’s no where near any posted speed limit signs, and they LOVE the hills because the casual driver (who may not have been speeding) will unintentionally speed up just in time to help them meet their quota.
Between Millbrook and Browning Pl, the speed changes 3 times, 45/35/40. Right in the middle are 2 churches. The polices waits there, about every weekend, 7 a. They know that the 35 sign is hardly noticed; driver is destructed by traffic light and school sign.
Hwy 64E from 540 to Wake county line – Wake Sheriff Dept. has a black Z06 Corvette and patrol 64 east and west in this area.On my way to Greenville they had a car pulled over 64 east bound.On my way home that afternoon they had a car pulled over 64 west bound.
Setting up day & night along entire length of Aycock St. They are fond of using the Roanoke Park area for hiding. Using mostly motorcycles.
