Pawtucket, Rhode Island Speed Traps
Please be aware that there is a weight restriction around about exit 26 to 28 for trucks over 22,000 lbs. and there are plenty of signs and there are plenty of trooper just waiting to pull you over huge fines! I drive this route every morning and evening and ther is always a truck on either side being pulled over. The troopers are stationed just after the last safe exit you can take.
Police will park their car in a little parking lot on the left side and they will stand across the street on the right side and catch you with radar. I have also seen them sitting in their cruisers on the street before you reach the intersection but that usually is late night around 11pm.
Police car usually parked on side street (between Newport Avenue and York Avenue) off Armistice Boulevard (Rte 15 Eastbound)several afternoons per week, especially between 4-5:00 p.m.
They park on the side right before a traffic light in a little parking lot. And as you come from Armistice Blvd up George R Bennet highway (used to be called Industrial Highway) there is a cemetary on your left and railroad tracks and a fence with mills on the other side. So it is easy to go faster than the posted limit that is not really posted on that part of the road.
Officer is regularly park at Woodland st., but they’ve been also spotted on the next couple of streets over (Rosewood st. and/or chesnut st.)
