Middletown, Rhode Island Speed Traps
This is a popular route to/from Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth. Parts are very commercial with shopping, etc., and parts are more rural. All along this route there is "agressive" radar enforcement.
There are a couple of School Zones along the route as well, where radar is very active at school hours. Speed limit will drop from 45/40 to 25 in those zones, and often the radar is setup right at the sign. There is NO speed over 25mph that is allowed in those strict areas.
Paradise Avenue runs between Green End Avenue and the road along Second Beach. Usually during the summer there is a radar trap about halfway down on the right hand side. They stand right out there on a dirt/gravel road with the radar gun catching unsuspecting beachgoers.
Four lane highway posted at 25 MPH, ridiculous setup. Usually setup Northeast bound, road transistions from two to four lane and they setup up right there catching people as they attempt to get by slow or left lane hanging cars. Also a bumper in the right lane so cars tend to hang in the leFort
The police are constantly sitting on Coddington looking for speeders. The MPH is posted at 25 which is ridiculous on that highway. They are anywhere from the trailerpark at the bottom to the old navy housing area in the middle.
Oliphant Ln., which connects Rt. 114 to 138, has an insanely low 25 mph speed limit. The cop sits behind a chain link fence that outlines the property of the Middletown airport alongside the road. Nearly impossible to see at night.
