Oakwood Village, Ohio Speed Traps
Broadway Avenue SE of the highway.
As you go NW on Broadway into Oakwood Village. The road is 2 lanes each way but is posted 25mph in some areas, May not notice the signs as they are near the trees in some locations. I was clocked going 35in a 25 but the policeman waited until I drove through town and was about to enter the highway on the onramp before pulling me over. I didn’t want to stop on the left lane of the onramp so waited for heavy truck traffic to clear then signaled to go to the right side on the side road. . He wasn’t happy that I changed locations (even though for his safety).
Interstate 271 near Exit Number 23 or 26
Oakwood police sit in the median facing south to catch northbound traffic, mostly morning commuters. Yesterday I saw the officer hiding behind a bridge abutment yesterday (Sunday 6/10/07). This is the first time I have seen them hiding behind this bridge abutment, the cruiser facing north. I think they are getting more creative. Slow down driving through Oakwood in Cuyahoga County during weekend mornings and you should be fine.
Oakleaf Boulevard near Between Broadway and Alexander Road
Motorcycle cop hides amongst some new horse trailers on display at the entrance to a trailer manufacturer. Motorcycle and cop are entirely obscured. After clocking the target, the cop runs out into the street seemingly from nowhere to flag down the offending motorist, which I might add is somewhat more startling than the ticket. Oakleaf Blvd is a single lane (one direction) commercial access road paralleling I-271 between Broadway and Alexander Rd. Posted speed is 35 after the I-271 entrance ramp splits off. This is a non-residential area with only two commercial side streets. Motorist should heed the 35 MPH before the trailer shop or face the police.
