Elsmere is the speed trap capital of Delaware. They have nothing else to do but pull you over. They will pull you over for going 36mph in a 35mph zone. Obey the limit and put your seat belt on. Don’t even think of driving through the town if you’ve been drinking.

Amazing that after more than 50 years, Elsmere is STILL A speed trap! They nabbed me once heading through Elsmere on the Kirkwood Highway on my way back to Newark from Wilmington at 1 AM back then. The cop picked me up by tailgating my car with his brights on, finally gave me a short burst on his siren, and pulled me over, charging me with careless driving. If I were driving "carelessly", it was because of the tailgating and blinding he was giving me with his brights. That was the first moving violation I ever had, and they made me show up in court the next week.
