Ashaway, Rhode Island Speed Traps
Police vehicles posted all along this stretch of road, varying from the Trinity Lutheran Church parking lot, to the gravel pit across the way, to Robin Rd, to the Ambulance Association parking lot, even to the small Park entrances before Maple Court. Have seen them peeking out of Cemetery Lane at times as well. Speed limit is only 25, but with the slightly rolling hills, they catch you as you’re chugging up or coasting down.
As you travel on Rte 3 traveling South, the speed limit reduces from 40 miles mph to 25 mph. There is a sign, but easy to miss. The police are usually parked in the Ashaway Fire Dept. parking lot across from the gas station. Especially on the lookout for out of state licenses.
Hopkinton PD (read: Hopkinton911!) sits in-between the two trees adjacent to the Crandall Field entrance, before the curve. Watch out, they’ll sit with their lights off, and have almost no reflective strips on the vehicle. High beams will usually spot them, but usually too late. Speed limit is 25 until Post Office, where it becomes 35.
