Pawtucket, Rhode Island Speed Traps
Pawtucket, RI & Seekonk, MA police lurk in this parking lot going after speeders.
Speed limit 25. At this writing, don’t recall where it is posted.Nottigham will be on your right as you travel down East Ave. towards Blackstone BLVD. After you round the corner, uphill, near Shea High, the road continues to incline. It then slowly goes down hill. Your view to the right side of the road is obscured due the the downward elevation change. There is a green mail pick up box on the corner of Nottigham. The lurker parks their car back down Nottigham so it cannot been seen. They stand behind the mail box and place their radar gun above the mail box. I find it best to drive exactly 25 and give them a friendly wave. One clueless,fine gentleman even waved back. Obviously thought he must have known me.
The sneaky policeman hides his car, the he gets out and stands behind the fence all on private property, and nails everyone over 30 in a 25 zone. It is pathetic to even imagine any safety factor at this location as there is no homes along the roadway, all commercial businesses, no sidewalks, no people walking along the road, There are just railroad tracks. All to get their overtime money as quickly as possible. Like I said, There is no safety factor at this location, just another rip-off to the taxpayer and the good motoring public!

Speed limit goes from 40 in Seekonk MA to 25 in Pawtucket RI at state line. Sign is posted long after state line. Cruiser sits one block in and tickets drivers going into Pawtucket. You have to know to slow down in the 40MPH Massachusetts area before entering Pawtucket. It just doesn’t seem right.
