Chillicothe, Ohio Speed Traps
State Troopers frequently hunt in packs between the US 35/50 interchange and the Vinton County line. They frequently park in areas where they can target citizens coming off the steep hills near Walnut Creek or while traveling thru the reduced speed zone within Londonderry. There are very few safe places along this route for them to pull you over putting everyone at risk of an accident. Because of this, the normal speed trap operation is 7 days per week from mid afternoon to dark.
Car sits under the overpass bridge on the left looking to people to stop at the sign at the end of the exit. If you don’t stop, you will get caught!
police sit back off riverside street next to flood wall/ bike path waiting for drivers to exit bridge street to riverside street speed limit on bridge street is 40 speed limit on riverside is 25
The Camera lights have been removed but when they were there I saw cops going 50 in a 35 down Bridge St, with no lights or sirens on, and they were just waiting to catch people
The city of Chillicothe is now using now using speed cameras, although there are no signs posted indicating the cameras are in use. There is a section of West Main St that drops 35 mph to 25 mph. Unless you are watching for this change it is easily overlooked I was sent a $95 ticket for driving 37 mph in a 25 mph section. There are more cameras up and down Main and Bridge St.So be careful BIG brother is watching you.
