Oregon City, Oregon Speed Traps
Two lane with East and West bound. Traffic on most of Beavercreek is 55 mph.
Reduces to 20 mph during school hours although school can be seen about a block from road. Enforcement by State, County and City. Well signed but No Flashing Warning Lights.
Highway 213 from Beavercreek Rd to Redland road Northbound going down the hill. The trap is generally toward the bottom of the long downhill stretch of road. They usally work in pairs of two motorcycles. Very easy to exceed the posted 55 MPH speed limit. Seems to be more on the Northbound side of the Highway than the south but have seen it both places
This primary road was actually thinned from four lanes to three last year. Since then, the speed trap has been much more vigilant. As you travel north down the hill from the Hilltop strip mall, the posted speed limit is 30 MPH. The police wait near the bottom of the first hill at any of a number of blind parking areas. By then, you’ve picked up significant speed just coasting and are approaching the turn just before Eastham school. If you haven’t been braking down the slope, you’re doing 40 to 45 mph, minimum. There are no warning tickets issued!
State AND Clackamas County MC LEO’s lurk near the last corner going downhill(northbound) to trap daydreamers who have been travelling about 4% downgrade for nearly 2 miles. They are occasionally near the top on the right side southbound side, but the revenue stream from uphill drivers is not up to the downhill ones, so they are rare southbound.
Heavy concentration of officers from state, county, and city departments. 40 means 40! And it is easy to go too fast here.
