Exit 230-Highway 20 (Anacortes/Burlington)

Burlington, WashingtonApr 05, 20110 Comments

Saturday morning, 3/25/11, I spotted this major speed trap as I traveled northbound. The trap is for southbound motorists, who are, shortly before the trap, in a 70 mph zone. Then, the speed limit drops to 60 as the road rises up to conveniently provide cover for the trap. The exit sign and right-side turn off may take your view momentarily off the road, but just behind and to the left of the sign for this exit, a State Patrol pickup truck, like a Jeep – no lights on top, may have been unmarked even – is pointed straight at you, his laser gun pointed through the windshield. Down below, where the onramp from SR-20 is, were three waiting troopers, akin to an alligator swamp, waiting to snap up speeders. There are only 2 lanes, so these are easy pickings!
