Winooski, Vermont Speed Traps
This trap is located right at the Winooski bridge before exit and after entrance on to the ramps at Winooski. Usually state or unmarked or DMV vehicles sit at the pull offs between traffic just after and before the bridge. Speed is only 50mph but they will stop for any reason if it’s a slow day/night.
Coming down the hill from RT-15 into the City of Winooski the speed goes from 35-25 and its mostly down hill so it tough to keep it under 35. Usually anything over 10 mph gets a ticket.
Traveling south from Winooski to S. Burlington on Lime Kin Rd. you are very likely to run into law enforcement. The road starts downhill with a bridge at the bottom and turns to the right. Police love to hide just around the bend. There always seems to be construction in the area and this is where they hide. Coming from Route 15 where the posted speed limit is 40-45 it is easy to maintain these speeds when traveling on Lime Kiln. There is no posted Speed Limit until you get to the bottom of the hill and the bend to the right begins. By this point its already too late, they’ve clocked your speed via radar. They claim there is a posted Speed Limit at the top of the hill, but I brought the pictures to prove it to court with me. I still lost, but you have to fight.
Whether entering Winooski from Route 15 from Essex or Route 2 from Colchester or traveling along Weaver st., speed limit is 25 and strictly enforced by cops stationary or moving. Anything over 30 is fair game and expensive. 43 mph on Weaver st cost over $230. Especially easy to exceed 30 on Route 15 after passing St. Mike’s college and cops are waiting.
35mph to 25 mph at the bottom of the hill – notorious speed trap. 3 to 5 cars in a liquor store parking lot at the bottom of a winding hill, the 25 mph sign hidden behind other signs and overgrown trees. I have heard the trap as been here for over 10 years.
