Scranton, Pennsylvania Speed Traps
The police sit back off of the Expressway as you are approaching the end and entering onto Mulberry Street in a little spot right after the 7th Ave. exit begins. They also sit in the opposite direction in front of the Scranton High School, but this is more noticeable.
State troopers and city police officers usually park their patrol cars on side streets, pull-offs, or the Lookout on SR-307. They will usually target northbound traffic going down the hill. I sometimes see cars pulled over on Moosic Street, which is at the bottom of SR-307.
Just as you come off the paved section of 81 onto the concrete (3 lanes). The road gradually goes to the right and the State Police sit on the right against the sound barrier. Also just past the Drinker Street exit going north on 81, they sit behind the overpass pillar on the right by the Throop exit. They are usually in an unmarked car with a group of marked cars waiting a little further up by the 380/81 on ramp. Very Sneaky! Always watch the cars ahead of you for abnormal slowing!
Right near the top of the on ramp from 7th avenue, and in the other direction there is one before the 7th avenue and providence road exit. The cop car is very well hidden and you cannot see until you are on top oif them. a lot of people get pulled over regulary
The Scranton Police sit on the side of the road, exiting the city-over on the right by the new school there is a dirt road they sit on. Entering the city, they sit off to the right immediately after the sound barrier ends its a grassy area with a gravel place where they park.
