Elyria, Ohio Speed Traps
Coming off exit ramp onto Lorain road to a highway style on ramp (ramp turns you about 180 degrees) onto a 4 lane divided highway. Coming onto Lorain road, one can see the yield sign, which causes you to want to either check your mirrors or look over your shoulder to look for oncoming traffic. The problem is it will most likely cause you to miss the speed limit sign of 35 about 100 ft after the speed limit sign on what looks like a road that can easily support a 55MPH limit. Traffic there is very low, yet the officer was there waiting. I am willing to bet over 75% of all tickets issued here are to non-locals. If they really wanted to keep speeds down, they could give you a speed limit warning sign on the ramp from I80. They only have a yellow suggested curve speed of 30 on the ramp.
State and County officers patrol area. speed limit is 35 don’t go over 40
25mph due to playground/park and school close by and its’ an easy route to community college; police will sit in either of the parks parking lot with laser for persons to come out of "dip in road" from east to west and catch speeders over 25 mph
The speed limit is 45 mph south of albreict and drops to 35 mph just as you pass north of albreict. It remains 35 mph until you cross over RT 113 by Artesian Springs, at which point the speed increases to 50 mph. On that 35 mph stretch, you will see State Patrol cars sitting at one of these locations: Open Door School, Convenient shopping center, car wash, or the church across from the car wash.
Finwood Estate is NOT between Taylor St. & East Broad….It is on Abby Rd. just south of Burns Rd.
Although city police & state troopers do have speed traps between Taylor & East Broad on Abby as well.
