Medford, Oregon Speed Traps
A white Medford Police Department camera van parks on the South side of Garfield Street near Kenyon Street and takes your photo if you are exceeding the speed limit posted for school days and times.
There is a sign placed on the ground a few blocks ahead warning of the camera van’s presence.
Troopers sit at the old Hungry Woodsman. They watch the lights & write $260.00 tickets for failing to bet a traffic control device. The lights are not set properly so it’s sometimes impossible to clear the intersection before the yellow goes to red while turning east bound from 99 on to Crater Lake Hwy 62 near Target.
Van sits on right (west) side of Black Oak near Country Club Drive.
White van sits here periodically because the posted speed is 25. Used as a good source of revenue by the City, because most people don’t realize that it is such a low speed limit through there. On one side is a fenced field, and on the other a sidewalk with residential homes, so they can get away with posting it so low, apparently. You have to really focus on keeping it at 25. People are generally caught traveling down Juanipero heading towards N. Phoenix Road. The van really blends in, the speed sign is hard to find.
The white photo van hides out of the line of site just past the St. Vincent DePaul Thrift Store and operates on the northbound traffic going toward Central Point. The will occasionally be in the same area on the opposite side, but more often work the north bound traffic.
