Pawtucket, Rhode Island Speed Traps
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.
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!
