Indiana, Pennsylvania Speed Traps
A cop sits nearby a 4-way intersection to make sure you aren’t speeding through the stop sign as you start to go uphill.
This is while you’re travelling along the 422 business route after taking the Philadelphia St. exit off of US 422. Once up above the hill, about a mile down or so sits a trooper on the right side. It’s very easy to go above the speed limit on this road.
The trooper will sit on the on-ramp from route 286 to 422 west. This ramp is high and steep, and you pass under 286 only to see the side of the ramp as you pass by. You have to go well past the on-ramp to see the trooper sitting there, and by that time it will be too late. The speed limit is 65, so there’s really no reason to go barrelling past the interchange.
This is on Philadelphia Street at the western part of town (towards route 422). From 13th Street out to the end of town there are a few sets of white lines. Watch these carefully! This is a 35 zone, and the borough police use this area quite frequently. They love nothing better than snagging the college students who make up a small part of the population of Indiana. I have even seen them at these traps on Sunday mornings (Late for church? Don’t get in a hurry here). If stopped, be nice to these gentlemen, as they don’t tolerate much past "yes sir" and "no sir."
Trooper sits in the emergency cross-over between the west and eastbound lanes. Sometimes two will share the duties and shoot both directions. I have even seen them there at 2:30 in the morning, but this is rare. You have plenty of time to see them as they are out in the open.
