Cincinnati, Ohio Speed Traps
Be careful coming eastbound out of downtown Cincinnati. Last week, I saw two Ohio State Highway Patrol cars patrolling for speeders, tailgaters, and drunk drivers along Eastern Ave (Riverside Dr.) between Kemper Lane and Stanley Ave. They use both X and K band radar while moving, and Laser (Lidar) when they are stationary. Watch for them sitting on one of the side streets running laser on cars travelling eastbound. They are sneaky. What happened to Cincinnati Police patrolling the streets? I guess they are too shorthanded to worry about traffic/speeding issues, so they had to call OSHP for help. There are probably to many murders, robberies, and shootings for them to investigate, therefore traffic crimes are handed over to OSHP!
I always see them parked there….sometimes 15-20 of em
Compton Road thru Springfield Twp and Mt. Healthy. Constant police survellience. Three miles per hour over the speed limit will warrant you a ticket.
Highway speed drops abruptly at city limits, from 55 to 35 mph. police hide immediately after 35 mph sign.
Police cruisers sit in parking lot of Whitaker Elementary school, looking for cars speeding through the 20 mph school zone. This area is heavily enforced and cars are seen pulled over almost every morning around 7:15 am to about 8:15 am.
