Canaan, Vermont Speed Traps
Sheriff waits on Park Street, or in the dirt parking area. Three miles over will get you a ticket ! If you have out of town plates, then expect a ticket. You will get a ticket just for being there! Try to drive about three miles under the posted limit and make sure you use direction signals too! This guy’s main purpose is giving out tickets and he is very good at writing them.
Sheriff gives you a ticket and tells you your speedometer is not accurate. Out of state plates are an attraction. Revenue is the motive here. Rented a cottage here and we got a few tickets despite driving the speedlimit. Never returned. We rent at a place in New Hampshire now.
Sheriff basically will give you a ticket regardless. He will ask you if your speedometer has been calibrated. If you drive a pickup, you had better have stock mudflaps or he will ticket you. You had better have a single , stock, exhaust or you will get a noise ordinance. Basically, you get some type of ticket for just being there. He sits across from the row of cottages next to the office that rents them, yellow building. Sometimes he will folow you for a few miles and pull you over just before the town line. He will do a walk around and look at your tires, mudflaps, windshield, mirrors, for wear, damage, or anything that does not appear right.
