East Providence, Rhode Island Speed Traps
When coming from Pawtucket Ave and turning on Center Street, there is usually a police car hiding on either the first or second street on the right hand side.
Just as you enter East Providence from Pawtucket on Patwucket ave, they set up in the parking lot of Stanley’s Monuments. Usually see them in the evening
Roger Williams Ave, posted speed is 25mph. most poeple go much faster. They set up on the side streets as you enter from Pawtucket Ave, just far enough so they can not be seen until it is too late.
The police car is on the grass on the extreme right after the second exit where the road widens and approaching the end of the road. You can only see the top of the police car first and it is so far over to the right you don’t even notice it. I’ve seen police cars on this strecth of road before in the wide break down lane, but never way over on the grass.
New Speed Trap: Around Kent Heights School and Benny’s. They just put in new speed limit signs for 30 mph, cars are used to traveling 40-45 on this stretch without a problem even though the old speed was 25. Now you will be stopped if you are going over 30.
