Danby, Vermont Speed Traps
Black unmarked Dodge Charger parks directly in front of McLellan’s Garage on Route 7 in Danby facing south. He instant-ons traffic headed both north and south using Ka-band radar. Beware.
The officer sits in front of the McLellans gas station in an unmarked Impala ss the speed limit drops from 50 to 40. This officer is the number one ticket writer in the state. No saving grace here.
Constable and Sheriff,who are paid from from fines collected. Mt. Tabor collects a good part of its income from fines. Out-of-state cars more than cars with Vermont plates seem targeted.

Public safety is the fig leaf that covers the real purpose of their periodic rounding up of speeders, revenue enhancement.
