Rte 9

Kinderhook, New YorkJan 01, 20022 Comments

Speed limit through Valatie and Kinderhook is extremely low, whole town is a speed trap. The worst place is probably entering the village of Valatie, right before the 9W underpass – the cop waits on the grass there after dark. You don’t see him until it’s too late. You can get nabbed for going as little as 5 miles over the limit. Heck, I was once pulled over and warned for going 3 – yes, THREE – miles over. I was going 38 miles per hour, and the limit’s 35 all through town.

I totally disagree with ths post. If the traffic signals and speed posts are obeyed you have very little to worry about. Our local police are just doing their job and I seriously doubt that it was just three miles over the limit. The speed limit through either village is seldom followed if anything, there are not enough tickets handed out as drivers blatantly ignore the laws.

The overpass mentioned is not Route 9W, it's Route9H. Cops wait on the south side of Route 9 under the overpass and are very difficult to see in the day, impossible to see at night.
