Tillamook, Oregon Speed Traps
Just west of the Blimp hanger, Oregon’s finest watch to make sure you come to a full 3 second stop before entering Hwy 101. If you have out of state plates you’ll definitely get a $242.00 "welcome summons", locals get a pass.
When most people come out of the mountains on the Wilson River Highway (Oregon Rte. 6) where it finally opens up and you’ve been doing 25mph the whole time, you want to Romp On It. Do Not do this. Keep it at the legal limit. Here’s the gimmick: After 10pm, the traffic lights all just go to a blinking red (four way stops, essentially). If you are coming into Tillamook from the east on Oregon Rte. 6, watch all the speed limit signs. When you go under the railroad viaduct, it goes to 30 – Thirty Miles Per Hour. You will see blinking red lights ahead of you (near the post office but, if you’re not from there, you won’t know where the post office is anyway), So….. The city kitty sits behind the building by the restaurant (forget the name at this point…) You must come to a full and extremely complete stop here. Look to your right. See the squad!? 9 times out of 10 it will be between 10pm and 4am. The next intersection is U.S. Highway 101 (Pacific Ave.). If you are going north, obviously you’ll be turning right, going south, left. If you are headed out toward Netarts or Oceanside, take a Left, then a Right on 3rd street. This will take you all the way out to the ocean (about a 7 mile ride). Just remember. At night: Speed trap time. Another one is (during the day), as you head south through town, just as you start to get out of town, this is a 25mph zone. Do not speed up until you pass the 55 mph sign. They are watching by the appliance shop *one of two in town*. In about one minute you’ll pass the airplane on a stick. Look to your left to view the infamous “Tillamook county jail.”
Officer sits back off the road in the Seventh Day Adventist Church parking lot waiting for anyone to begin increasing their speed as they leave town. There is a speed sign just after the Goodspeed Rd sign and if anyone accelerates before that point onto the HWY he nails them.
Officer sits in parking lot of Pizza Hut or car dealership. Waits for offenders, including school bus violators, and turns on the sirens and lights.
