Defiance, Ohio Speed Traps
The police department sit at the railroad tracks for GM and clock primarily east bound traffic, speed limit is 45 on the way out of town. There are only a few businesses out there and it seems the speed limit should be 55. However they do get a little bit of west bound traffic going into town.
There is a hill when you are going east and they sit at the bottom of the hill on a side street located near there. They clock you as you are most of the way down and unless you slam on brakes you will be speeding as the speed limit is 35 mph.
They sit in the old KMart parking lot monitoring Stadium Drive which is 35 mph, but set up like a highway. They do lots of business there, so beware.
Police set in the Figley stamping parking lot , and get people coming down Karnes and off of Cleveland. It’s marked 25mph. The parking lot they sit in is sunk down so you don’t see them
Patrol car sits in the little nook of the former elementary school looking south.Also mixes it up and parks in the parking lot of the Lawson Reasoner Funeral home,just 100 yards south of the elementary school.
