Oakridge, Oregon Speed Traps
As you approach Oakridge Oregon from the west there is a clearly marked speed reduction to 45 mph then another clearly marked reduction to 35 mph. This is a trick as the police really mean for you to slow down! I live in this city and know many locals who have been ticketed for speeding. I have travelled in excess of a million miles and have never gotten a speeding ticket by simply paying attention and using common sense. In Oakridge its a constant flow of traffic that resent our speed limit or ignore it. None cry foul louder than the guilty.
Through most of town, the speed limit is 35 mph, even where there are limited intersections, 4 lanes, no stop signs, few pedestrian crossings. Other towns would have this at 45 or 55 mph. Classic speed trap and the cops near are local boys that are trying to make a buck for their hometown.
Long downhill into town. Speed signs are hard to see. I never saw one.
I was going same speed as locals. I’m told they love to ticket out of state drivers.
Cop "hides" on road into a cemetery…….lots of shrubbery………if you follow the speeding trucks, you are not safe. The trucks are NOT stopped but the cars are.
Hiway goes from 55 mph to 25 mph within a few hundred yards. Local traffic, log trucks etc stay right at 25 and I saw a car get pulled over that was probably doing 30.
