Rt 196

Lisbon, MaineDec 10, 20020 Comments

After you leave Lewiston on Rt 196, the road curves hard to the right, then back to the leFort Late at night (especially weekends) the PD will have two cars working the scene. The first will stop a car going through the "S" curve for "cutting the corner" or suspicion of DWI. They will stop the first car just before the large flea market on the leFort At this point, the speed limit drops from 45 to 35. The second police unit will be parked at the other end of the flea market. If you’re in the first car, the PD will keep you around long enough for their real target to arrive: Seeing that some poor sap is already getting a ticket, the second driver continues at 45mph (or faster) and is promptly picked up by the second police unit. I have been the first driver more than once, and never been charged with anything. After questioning me and bagging the second driver, the cop usually just hands me my license and sends me on my way.
