Madras, Oregon Speed Traps
This stretch of highway heavly patrolled by both state and county police.
Madras has a 25 mile an hour speed limit and also two school zones that drop to 20mph that are closely monitored. Also, one Madras city policeman has taken it upon himself to personally enforce the seatbelt law. He writes more seatbelt tickets than any other law enforcement officer in the entire state of Oregon. An old white haired guy who should retire.
As you enter the North end of Madras US Hwy 97 and US Hwy 26 merge into NW 5th street. The speed changes to 25 at the light of this merging intersection. After you pass through the stop light, around a fairly sharp corner there will be a patrol car sitting behind Madras Auto Parts just after A street.
