Sharon, Vermont Speed Traps
State trooper sits by the firestation or in Dixie’s Resturant parking lot. The speed limit is 45 mph. Everyone is picking up speed heading out of the town of Sharon. Watch it there!
This stretch of road is posted 35 mph. It is a ridiculously low speed limit for this rural long and winding downhill state route. It is nearly impossible to keep your vehicle at 35 mph on this part of the road. The county sheriffs sit at a pull-off during morning and evening commutes and issue lots of tickets to otherwise law-abiding and respectable citizens.
Going west on Rt. 132, after passing Beaver Meadow Road, the speed limit drops to 35 MPH on a series of steep downhills before you reach the bottom of 132 where it intersects with I-89. You must break continuously to keep within the speed limit. Sheriff hides just below drops so you won’t see the trap until it is too late.
The county sherrif sits just outside of town past the local convenience store (Tracy’s Midway Station) in the cemetary, and across the road from Sandy’s Restaurant a little further outside of town. Headed towards Sharon from So. Royalton a small rise in the road makes it impossible to see him until its too late.
