Coventry, Rhode Island Speed Traps
State Route 117 near Town Farm Road
Police back into the driveway extention of Suburban Propane facing west. It’s on a corner and they back almost into the woods……..Very hard to see them
Tiogue Avenue near Pilgrim Avenue
The local police normally station a cruiser in the Benny’s parking lot to observe traffic on Tiogue Avenue.
Reservoir Avenue near Tiogue Avenue
On Reservoir Ave, a patrol car will sit either on the left side of the road on the grass after the first enterance to Coventry High School or right across the street in a dirt road that i think goes around the back of American Sandblasting. The town had received alot of complaints from residents around there of speeding and the town had a meeting about it in late winter 2007 and now there’s a cop there mostly during the late night hours all the time mostly between 10 pm into the late hours probably 3-4 am They have been pulling everyone over watch out.
State Route 95N near Exit Number 6
After long straightaway on 95N coming toward exit 6A, there is a sharp bend in the interstate. It’s a blind righthand curve, and the RI Staties sit right on the grass adjacent to the on-ramp after the corner. Watch out, it’s a dangerously deceptive spot. You never see it coming unless you expect it. Stay in the right lane and you’re safe at or below 70.
Rt 102 and 117
Coventry Cruisers sit alongside the salt barn. Favorite just before they head in to switch shifts…around 5am! All along Rt 102 but especially active at the above intersection.
