Allentown, Pennsylvania Speed Traps
Police officer sits back off of road policing in the middle of the night
when traffic is very low. Your minding your own business a danger to no
and then you see the flashing lights of corruption.
Crosswalk under the Pedestrian Bridge. The police lie in wait in the parkinglot to the left of this shabbily marked crosswalk and nail you if you miss it.
Beginning around the Auto Tags and Notary and going all the way up the long hill toward Fountain Hill, the Salisbury Police have at least 4 cruisers and an SUV poorly hidden on various side streets and little driveways. The speed limit is ridiculously low and there there are no stop signs or traffic lights even after the road meets Emmaus Ave and turns into Broadway in Fountain Hill, so it is easy for your speed to creep up. First morning I’ve seen this is a long while.
A cop hides between the gas station and the store across the street from the school. He is usually there in the mornings, mid-day, and afternoon when the 15 mph school zone restrictions are in effect. He is visible from the westbound lane, but impossible to see when heading east.
Local police hide in a cul-de-sac near or in the shopping center across from amusement park and watch northbound traffic every day (several times a day).
