Phillipsburg, Ohio Speed Traps
Police sit in the church parking lot; they look for speeders and also for those not coming to a complete stop at the stop sign. I do mean a complete stop.
Going from 55 to 35 very quickly
periodically a police car sits in the church lot at this intersection. I was stopped at 6:30 in the morning for not coming to a complete stop. Weather was clear with no other cars in sight.
Local LEO is well-known to sit in obscure locations just inside the village limits in case those just traveling through don’t notice the speed limit reduction from 55 to 35 at the appropriate time.
Any approach to Phillipsburg on Route 49 going north or particulary Phillipsburg-Union Rd. heading West is trapped. The highway is posted 35 MPH, but the city street is 25 MPH coming off 55MPH at the edge of town.
