Route 287 expressway both South and North near Route 23 ramp
From Boonton to Pompton Lakes near Wayne, all along north and south stretch area of Route 287 expressway be very careful in this mountainous road area of 3 lane highway. The road is frequented by local and out of state/region travelers who think the remote environment of forests/mountains mean this would be a stretch of highway to go above 65. Almost everyday, motorists are pulled over – cop cars are hidden in areas for catching speeding and also at bottom of hill areas in plain view – sometimes operating in pairs so if you are driving above 70 you will surely get a hefty ticket starting at $300+. Use of radar is common and motorists are stopped by a second cop car 1-5 miles further down the road. Also unmarked cars as well. The problem is that the surrounding area of Wayne is full of congestion and impatient drivers who give the illusion there are no speed traps but this area is one of the worst in the nation – pulling multiple cars over almost everyday. Beware! Most drivers ignore the posted 65mph and go much faster which is an ongoing problem with NJ and tourists/large immigrant population some of whom have immunity as diplomats as well as corruption among the wealthy drivers with the state government to get out of paying tickets.
