Ashland, Oregon Speed Traps
There’s an apartment complex at Tolman Creek/ Abbott St., in the 200 block of Tolman Creek Road near the curve that leads to E. Main. The curve itself is a legit 25mph, but they keep the speed limit at 25 mph even after Tolman straightens out ( where 35-40mph would be a reasonable assumption). Ashland P.D. likes to nestle a radar unit in the apartment complex to clip people who increase to what would be a reasonable speed for a street of this type.
There is often a police car hidden among the parked cars in the morning on Hersey Street facing east between Carol and Phelps streets clocking cars in both directions.
The speed drops from 65 to 55 and a cop sits right there. There are usually a lot of trucks and they can block the view of the limit sign and one can miss it. There is a second sign not much farther south, but the predator/cop sits right after the FIRST sign. Chickenbleep.
Heading Southbound on Hwy 99 from second Ashland exit (towards city of Ashland), the speed decreases twice in increments of 10 miles per hour over a short distance. Just past the 35 mile sign a motorcycle cop hides on Schofield, or sometimes Sheridan and easily picks off unsuspecting travelers that haven’t adjusted down their speed yet. Ashland has a city policy that you can pay your ticket in full and if you don’t receive another one in a year, they exponge your citation. This is a total cash cow, speed trap.
Motor officer sits in the trees near the baseball fields shooting for northbound traffic coming down the steep hill. He’ll stop you for 8 mph over the 25 limit.
