Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Speed Traps
County police are backed in beside Barlow Fire Hall to be obscured. When you pass it is too late. Locals kind of know. Lots of Maryland and tourist traffic, beware. [route 134, called Taneytown Rd.]
At the top of the on ramp of northbound Route 15 at Route 134 Taneytown Road in Gettysburg PA, the police often sit on the grassy area on the north side of the overpass bridge. Drivers cannot see it until it is too late.
On Route 30 , just west of Gettysburg, traveling through the battlefield, for approx 1/2 mile the posted speed is 25 mph (same as city speed limit). It used to be 35 mph. Police in marked and unmarked vehicles now issue citations for 36 mph.
Route 15 has a grassy median with many secluded spots for the PA state police to hide. They usually use instant on radar or aircraFort Another favorite spot on the same route is at the top opf the ‘on ramp’ which can not be seen from the road.
