Marlow, Oklahoma Speed Traps
North of Duncan, at what is known locally as the Lawton Duncan Y. This is a case if the left one don’t get you the right one will. The south side of the trap is Duncan Police territory, and the north side of the trap is Marlow Police territory. On the north side the cops park in the mediun facing either north or south or on the shoulder facing north. since they don’t always sit in the same place they are harder to spot, and there is a slight grade there that makes it a little harder to spot the cops. On the south side Duncan Police usually run a driving loop or park on the grass. Also if you see a Duncan Cop Leaving the speedtrap. Slow down anyway, it just means that it is Marlows turn to run the trap.
Marlow police set at the Lawton/Duncan Y that is formed by HWY 81 and HWY seven west to Lawton,OK. Intersection is between Marlow,OK and Duncan,OK. Officers wait on North side of intersection facing the south as motorists come into Marlow’s jurisdiction. You can not see the police until 50 yards from them. They have worn the grass by parking here and position just slightly below the elevation to where they are undetectable.
State Highway Intersection of Highway 81 and Highway7 Just a few miles north of Duncan and south of Marlow near Exit Number Lawton/Duncan Y intersection
The Marlow police selectively enforce this area miles south of Marlow. There have been many more accidents in downtown Marlow than at this intersection. Marlow police especially enforce the 45 mph speed limit very early in the morning (around 5 AM) on Northbound traffic which would be mainly against non-Marlow residents. They wouldn’t want to make their own taxpayers upset when they can get those "out of towners". I have never had a ticket, but plenty have.
