Edmonds, Washington Speed Traps
Going down hill onto 5th Ave. S.
The officer was just at the beginning of the street on the opposite site.
At the crest of the Hill on 196th in the Church parking lot tucked way back in the bushes (north side of the street). They sit there and nail people going both directions on 196th (near the Rock and Gem Club) just east of the curvy hill that descends into Edmonds.
When you crest the hill going down there will be an officer at the bottom (hiding under trees) and they get you every time. mph is 30 should be 45.
As 84th takes a dip and the elevated road passes over Chase Lake (really just a peat bog), a County Sherriff sits just south of the bridge on the east side of the roadway, hidden by trees, out of sight until it’s too late. They catch in both directions, northbound & southbound, as people standardly increase speed when going downhill. The fine is the same for 3 MPH over as it is for 10MPH over –
ka-ching! easy money.
Not necessarily a speed trap, but a trap none the less. This intersection is a large intersection with a fountain in the center of it, and the first signage you see is that of a round about. But, it is also a four way stop. Many drivers do not stop. Be aware, there is a small nook in the parallel parking strip on Main st. where one of Edmonds finest hides on his motercycle. A good revinue spot for sure.
