Wind Gap, Pennsylvania Speed Traps
Officer parks marked unit in driveway of a one family house facing the street with all lights off. It gives the impression he’s on the scene of a police response or visiting/dinner break. The limit is 25 mph but it’s such a wide, smooth road, it’s easy to get it up a bit and even though the unit looks empty when you pass him, he’s there and ready to nail anyone fast in the neighborhood. Hang-up. Pay attention. Change pedals.
This is a real nasty one, for drivers coming down from Saylorsburg towards Route 512. Once you pass the entrance ramp for Route 33 North on your left, you go under an overpass then straight down hill into the town of Wind Gap. Officers sit in an alley next to a garage on the right hand side near the bottom of the hill. The speed limit is posted at 35mph, but even coasting down the hill you can easily go over 60. I know personally four of five people who have been cited, and that’s just me. Make sure you keep on the brakes, the hill is steep and it’s very easy to go over the limit.

He’ll sit on the right side of the road pointing out at you right past the Wind Gap exit. Forget about your detectors. After dark, he’ll follow you and time it. Trailed me for four miles and the road is completely dark.
