Ward St & Broadway (The Marsh Road)

Revere, MassachusettsMay 31, 20092 Comments

Heading out of Lynn into Revere. The Marsh Road, route 107, has a 45 mph (or more) go down quick to 25 mph, reduced speed sign at the end of the road as you get to the rotary. There is a small side street where cops sit and check speed & seat belts. NOBODY goes 25 mph at the end of that road. The road is like a speedway. People tend to go 60 mph at least. It’s a divided, 2 lane per side, stretch that goes about 2 miles without any side streets. It feels like a highway, then you are supposed to crawl the last 1/4 mile at 25 mph. Not very realistic

I got nailed here tonight, it's set up just the way it is stated, I was ticketed for going 42 in a 25. As I was being written up dozens of other vehicles were zipping on by, breaking this impossible to comply with speed limit. Maybe because I was an out of stater I was easy pickings.

Definitely a speed trap. I'm a retired Trooper out of the Revere Barracks.... and it's always been a favorite among cops.
