Pawtucket, Rhode Island Speed Traps
After you pass the Beveridge Hill Ave. intersection on Prospect St. you will see the speed limit drop to 25. You will enter a clearing with some industrial buildings with empty parking lots down the road. Police hide out in these lots and off to some side streets, any time of day, stopping anyone doing anything over 25. The cops tend to move around to different streets and parking lots so you never know where they’re hiding. Keep it under 25 from Beveridge Hill Ave. to the downtown area and you should be okay.
Empty parking lot next to checker club accross from school. Stops just about everyone
Speedtrap is in Slater Park. Driving in the park along the one-way road that runs along the pond, there is a hill. The speed limit is not posted. As you accelerate to go over the hill you will immediatly see one or more police cruisers at the bottom. They will not be using radar but will be ‘visually’ checking for speeders. The officer(s) are standing outside their cars and walk into the road to stop vehicles. The first time I was stopped and given a warning and told the limit was 15 mph and that in the future they will be giving tickets. The speed limit is posted about 200′ down the road after you have already been stopped.
This trap is going south on Broadway, after you pass over the I-95 bridge. This section opens up from one lane to two lanes then three. You would think the speed limit would be at least 30mph, but it is 25mph. They sit on either side of the road right near D’anglelo’s. Pawtucket cops are very sneaky, standing off the side of the road hiding behind/beside cars with hand radar.
There are traps from the Providence line all the way to high school. Limit is 25mph.
