US Rte 30 near State Rte 462, West York.
On US30 between Rte 74 and Hwy 462 in West Manchester township is an emergency turn-around on a straight stretch of US30. The turn-around is about half a mile east of the US30/462 interchange in West York. Police sit there at that turn around an have an unobstructed view of vehicles coming around the blind curves both east and west of the location. Police usually run the trap against westbound US30 traffic, but can still observe eastbound traffic. On occasion, officers hide on top of an overpass which passes over the curve east of the location and observe vehicles undetected. Sometimes local police use a civilian appearing vehicle (right now it’s a greenish Ford Windstar) that sits on the side of the road and appears to be broken down, but is actually using a type of mobile radar to observe traffic. This vehicle is actually a police unit and is fully decked out with lights and siren. This location is especially used during local automotive events and meets as a means to crack down on street racing on US30.
