Portland, Oregon Speed Traps
Photo radar, there again on Oct 4, 2011,
25 mph speed limit on Freeway on-ramp. A sucker trap.
He’s there almost every week. He was there the week of Sep 20, 2011 & Jun 14, 2011 that I know for sure.
Photo truck on the 60th before the on ramp to I-84 east
It is in the city limits for Damascus, officer parks in driveway of the abandoned farmhouse on the north side and radars you. Speed is now posted @ 45MPH, used to be Oregon Speed Rule (55MPH). He has to get out of the the car to use the radar because the brush is so high this summer, but just do 45 and you will be OK.
Watch out for the Photo Radar trap at night on the Ross Island bridge heading into SE Portland. They put the trap in an area where you have to start coming up to speed from 25mph to the 40mph limit that’s on the bridge yet they take your photo in between the 1 block distance where your car is going in between 25mph and 40mph, which is totally unreasonable.
Just as before you enter Ross Island Bridge heading east from downtown, there’s an underpass that curves to the left. Right after the underpass, the camera van was parked on the right. There was no posted speed limit to speak of in that immediate area. I have no idea what speed limit you are expected to drive at where the van is parked. About 50 feet after the van, the speed limit is 40. I could see the sign ahead of me as I passed the van, yet the van flashed “your speed: 37mph” I have no idea what that meant.
