Timmins, Ontario Speed Traps
West of the Canadian Tire Store, cruiser parks in industrial lot on south side of the highway. Speed limit changes from 60 to 80, 1/2 mile past the lights. Don’t begin to accelerate until you hit the 80 sign or they’ve got you!
The police are parked in the parking lot at Gillies lake due to people going faster then the posted 80km/hr coming down the hill.
4 Locations here, one is at the beer store near the corner, across the street on Legion coming out of the O.P.P station, the other is about 100 feet east of the intersection, in the parking lot (an old Ministry bldg I beleive), or across the street from there in the Columbia Chrome lot at the west end of the lot.
There is often a cruiser parked on Bellemare St. just past the bridge on the way into Porcupine which catches motorists who don’t slow from 80 to 50 at the bridge.
This location cannot be seen until part-way around the bend & it is too late to reduce speed.
The speed limit changes from 70 to 60 close to this location and cruisers take advantage of this.
Often a cruiser parked on the north side of Hwy 101 in the lot of the car dealership/oil change shop, or the short road adjacent.
Cruiser may also be parked on the south side of Hwy 101 in the east lot adjacent to the motel, or in the parking lots of the businesses west of the motel.
