Winston Salem, North Carolina Speed Traps
City patrol cars back up behind guardrails just past Silas Creek Parkway going east on Bus.40. There’s a slight curve in the highway as you pass the on ramp which somewhat shields them from radar detectors.
This trap is a 1.5 miles before the Linville Rd exit if you’re heading East, and 1.5 miles after the Linville Rd exit if you are heading West. After passing the Linville Road exit heading East, there is a long straightaway, that leads up a long hill. At the top of this hill, you’ll see a bridge (no highway entry or exit). Heading East, they are just on the other side of the hill, past the bridge. Heading West, they are on the down side of the hill, parked behind the bridge – you can not see them going either way until you are right on them. And, unfortunately, due to the hill blocking the waves, a radar detector is not always very usefull.
Police officer (often motorcycle) hides on small gravel road where microwave tower is located. As you come down Petree there is a slight downhill before you intersect Shattalon Drive. You are likely to pick up a little speed here. Police oficers are most often at this site in the immediate afterschool hours- generally 3PM- 5 PM.
He parks right up against bushes in the median. You can not see him if you are heading west until you are past him. He can get out either east or west. So he can get you coming or going.
Highway Patrol park in the median with their car backed up to the tall bushes. It is difficult to see them, and they are writing tickets.
