Roseburg, Oregon Speed Traps
Local motorcycle (Honda ST 1100) officer hides behind the auto parts store waiting for your speed to increase as you come down the hill. Also works the next few blocks where speed limit drops from 35 to 20 MPH. Watch it!
they have just started to step coverage of this long straight 40 mph zone.
Hiding behind exit sign, shooting thru 6 roadside exit reflectors, his car facing wrong way, into oncoming traffic is pretty aggresive and dangerous stuff. Many locations along I-5, both N and S of immediate Roseburg area. Seems to like the beginning of work zones, where he can get you for an additional 10mph over, as the speed limit drops from 65 to 55. Note: In Oregon, No Reduction in fines is allowed if you are ticketed in a work zone, so don’t waste your time on getting a local Attorney, who is in cahoots w/the local courthouse. 1st tkt in 14 yrs. $501 TTL. $300 for attny, $201 fine! Seen him several times since, too.
For Douglas County 2 State Police patrol the county at any one time and will leave from Roseburg, one going North and one South. So if you pass one your in the clear till the county ends. When going North there is no place for a cop to sit north of Scott’s Valley/Elkhead, so go,go,go until you reach Lane county where there is a Cottage Grove speed trap.
