Providence, Rhode Island Speed Traps
On sunday mornings usually,but any morning still,state police hide in breakdown lane under the Glenbridge overpass on rte 6 heading east. The speed limit is 50 mph.
Going South on Broadway and taking the merge for Waterman Ave. There is a stop sign rather than a yield at that merge with Waterman.
Cop will back into a private driveway that belongs to a hairdresser on the left side of Waterman (after the Broadway merge). He steps out of car and uses RADAR/Laser to tag cars going west on Waterman and stops people for rolling stops coming from Broadway.
The cops claims there are a lot of accidents there. Speed limit is posted as 25.
South bound, just south of the state police barracks. I see three to four cars pulled over between 6-8 am.
Cops are out with radar quite often on Waterman Ave., about a mile from the old Red Bridge.
Late night there is usually a North Providence cop either in the Merriville parking lot, or in the Doctors office next door right when you get off 146 Northbound. They almost never have their lights on, and if they do its just parking lights. They nab people constantly
