Overpass Street

1st Ave North railway overpass. Police maintain a constant speed trap here with minimal enforcement elsewhere in the city. Peak times are end of month. Afternoons and evenings more than mornings. Usually they work in tandom one car on each side of the of the overpass. They clock you coming down the grade of the overpass. Speed limit is 25 mph where a higher speed wouuld be safe considering other areas of the city such as in front of schools being 30 mph and going through parks 35 msp – I would say the city gets a very large revenue from this speed trap. Its easy two police cars will be ther for hours writing tickets many times each month. I’ve gotten a ticket here and one other place mentioned – This is the main money maker for this city. It is an abuse of govermental power. I got caught I accept that. This trap is not about public safety its about making money. Lots and Lots of money. ON a given night you can see them writing ticket after ticket. Its easy prey and they make the most of it.
