US Highway 101 near State Highway 6
Heading south on US 101 through Raymond, when you think you’re out of town, you aren’t. Until you see a sign indicating a highway speed limit, you’re still in town. As you come to what looks like the edge of town, a Raymond police officer waits. I got nailed for 48 in a 35–but in fairness to the officer, he accepted my honest reason: that I thought I was through town and was accelerating to highway speed. If I hadn’t started pulling over the minute I saw his lights go on, or if I’d jacked him around, I’m sure I’d have been cited. It’s still a deceptive spot to watch for, though.
