York Avenue or Prospect Street or School Street (all are common speed traps)

Pawtucket, Rhode IslandJul 01, 20000 Comments

For years, the city of Pawtucket has used speed traps as a means to gain revenue. This is a widely known practice. Most motorists who drive in this area know "you don’t speed in Pawtucket" even though many of their roads are industrial highways with little traffic and residential areas. Pawtucket receives most of its funding for its schools from the state and is generally an under-funded community. Everyone I know has received at least one speeding ticket from this city. They go so far as to post a 25mph on a street that changes halfway into another city where the limit is suddenly 35! (Pawtucket Avenue into East Providence).
