Ellensburg, Washington Speed Traps
They drop the speed limit from 35mph to 25mph in front of the sheriff’s office where a rookie waits for you. $120 ticket.
Usually at the base of the hill northbound just after Thrall Rd. exit, about 1 mile before the I-90 intersection. Very prevelant at night, esp. with light traffic.
They will get you going East or West. In many cases you will see as much as 4 patrol cars working this area.
College area pedestrian crossing. "Plants" have been used in the past to bait drivers in the area. The kids crossing the streets have no fear of stepping out even against the lights. The zone is 20 mph and is patrolled by college, city, and county cops. In fact, as Eburg grows, and is the police "hub" of Kittitas County, there are probably more city, state, county, and university enforcement agents there than anywhere I’ve seen.
Anywhere along Interstate 90 between Cle Elum and Ellensburg the State Patrol sit under and on top of overpasses, along frontage roads and any where else they can to conceal themselves. They do their most aggresive monitoring on weekends, starting on Fridays thoughout the spring and summer months.
