Enumclaw, Washington Speed Traps
I have seen multiple people stopped along 400th, including myself, since Jan 2015. WSP is the culprit in the mornings with those new Chevy Impalas. They are using moving radar as you pass them. They can also get you going down the few hills along the way. The limit is 45 but 50-52 seems to be OK on this 5.5 miles of arrow straight road.
Hwy 410 West-bound just East of Enumclaw. Speed reduced to 40mph from 60? before entering town. Cop waiting behind a right curve, just after a long straight stretch of road. I had a radar detector on, but no time to react. I suspect they frequent this area waiting for people going skiing to/from Crystal Mtn.
I drive home from Enumclaw every day down this road, most of the time I drive past 244th I see a speed trap, 2 bike cops, one at the intersection of 244th and 400th, the other one 1/4 down the road to pull you over. Luckly I havn’t gotten a speeding ticket through there. I usually go about 50 to 55mph in the posted 45mph area.
1 to 2 miles of straight flat well maintained very wide two lane highway between Buckley and Enumclaw. Posted at 40mph with every side street well marked. 15 years ago before road improvments it was 55mph and way back 70mph.
The Judge will use lots of excuses including ‘Enumclaw has nothing to do with the speed limit’ even though it is Enum cops writing tickets and all the towns on the route are free to set there own limit. I was not prepared for this kind of BS as my local Judge has always been straight up.
Never personally gotten a ticket there i have radar detector. As youre coming down the hill to the bridge the limit changes from 40 to 35. If you are doing 42 or more they will pull you over, they usually hide in the cemetary or the road right before that.
