Everett, Washington Speed Traps
There is a poorly marked scchol zone with an officer camped out on the sidewalk waiting to take your DL# and send you on your way, believing you are getting off with a warning until the ticket shows up in your mailbox a few days later. He has to go catch another driver w/o a clue they are breaking the law.
Northbound as Evergreen Way turns into Rucker Avenue going downhill, police cruisers will usually sit in a parking lot off 43rd street. Sometimes they are on the west side near Safeway instead. It’s pretty easy to pick up a lot of speed going down the hill… I see someone pulled over nearly every day.
There are usually 1 to 3 cop cars patrolling this 5 lane road. I work across the street and watch them pull over one car after another for a few hours during the day. Speed limit is 30 miles per hour, but it is a pretty long stretch of road with not many houses or business. Mostly trees and cops everywhere. No warning, just tickets for anything over speed limit.
(I work as a driver and have a 10-year clean driving abstract, until I got a ticket here for going slightly over speed limit) – (Everett – Snohomish County)
Police stand by the cross walk with a hand held Radar devise and then signals people over during school getting in and getting out daily.
As you exit onto the flats (Hwy 529) from Southbound I-5 heading towards Everett there is a road right off the exit that Sherriff and State Patrol like to sit at in the dark and catch cars flying onto the flats. I’ve seen this enough over the last 15 years to call it "regular."
