Benton City, Washington Speed Traps
If you see a SUV parked under a shade tree slow to 25. They like to get you coasting down the hill.
Both West Richland and our Favorite State trooper in the unmarked chevrolet impala love this spot. They sit just beyond the S curves on Ruppert road heading east towards 224 Van Giesen and wait for you there. They are not tolerable above about 3 mph over. Just a heads up! They have been hanging out there alot lately! 10/04/2010
This is a small town with a 25 MPH limit just about everywhere. Even the main drag leading into and out of Benton City is 25, and they mean TWENTY FIVE. Drive 26 or more, and you have a 90% chance of getting stopped somewhere along the five or six mile stretch going through. There is a school zone at the north end, with a 20 MPH limit, so you’d better drop 5 MPH when you reach it. Note that for several miles PAST town going north, (out in the farmland past orchards etc.) the limit is still only 40 MPH.
