Conway, Washington Speed Traps
35 mph posted on straight downhill section. Very safe road, without housing, side streets, vehicles, or pedestrians (school was not in session). $150 ticket for 5 mph over. Patrol parks out of site and uses school parking to issue citations.
The Starbird Road overpass (I-5, Exit 218) is a favorite spot for the Washington State Patrol (and sometimes the Skagit County Sheriff) to set up and wait for motorists exceeding the 70 mph speed limit. Most stops are made northbound as it is downhill starting about a half mile before the overpass for about a mile.
