Pawtucket, Rhode Island Speed Traps
The speed limit is 25 and the police sit about a block before the traffic light at 114.
If you take exit 26 from Route 95N you will come to a stop sign at intersection with Newell Avenue. This is not necessarily a speed trap, but definitely police checking inspection stickers and giving citations for "rolling" through that stop sign. They will also issue a "rolling" violation as well at other stop signs on Newell Avenue. They stay well hidden on Barnes Street, Magill Street, and deep in the parking lots of local businesses.

Pawtucket Police will use any and all methods of getting money out of your wallet~ I have been driving for 24 years. The ONLY time I have received tickets is going through Pawtucket. Watch out for the Policeman STANDING on the side street after Dunkin’ Donuts going north to rte. 1. PATHETIC! What a way to run a city. Guess it beats controling the gang problems!
A cruiser parks at the opening of Soars Field partially behind the sign. He’s there early mornings usually and catches many people.
