State Highway 101
If you’re driving to or from Hampton Beach at night via Route 101, when you begin to see a major intersection in the road (the only major intersection), the speed limit drops drastically from 55 if you’re coming from the east and 50 if you’re coming from the west to 35. Most cars can travel through safely under 50, but anything above that, the police that lurk there at night consider it fair game. The cars can usually be found either on the left or the right side of the highway perpendicular to the set of lights that marks the intersection. Those sidestreets are perfect alcoves. It’s especially tough to see them if you come from the east. I’ve never gotten a ticket at this intersection, but I’ve seen at least 10 cars pulled over in that area in the last year, and I really don’t even use the highway that often. Excluding the beach itself, this stretch of highway leading to the beach is the most cop-populated and ominous in Hampton.
