Federal Way, Washington Speed Traps
During school hours – motorcycle cops love to get commuters going through this school zone -yes every school day.
Cops sit in at the bottom of the hill going up to the apartment complex on the right (if you are headed towards first from twin lakes). It is just after the light at Winco – kiddie corner from IHOP. They catch people who pick up speed coming around the corner. They are motorcycle cops who sit there making them harder to see.
Motorcycle cop sits in the curve where 349th meets Weyerhaeuser Way aiming radar gun at traffic traveling on Weyehaeuser Way. The speed limit is 35 to prepare for the turn onto 349th (I suppose, or maybe to accommodate church traffic entering and leaving parking lot).
This is a speed trap where going south on 330th St. where the speed limit changes from 35 to 25 almost instantaneously. A good majority of drivers ignore this and go anywhere between 35 to 40. I’ve never been busted but I’ve seen several people get pulled over. There are not always cops there, but during the late afternoons watch out.
Heading South on Pacific Hwy S just after you pass S 356th, there is some kind of weigh station on the right and the Sheriff likes to sit there. There is a patch of woods just before you get there, so they don’t have any problem hiding out. It is 45MPH through there so watch out!
