Pasco, Washington Speed Traps
On the north end of the bridge where the freeways are closest there’s an open spot that M.C. cops like to sit in and tag drivers from both directions.
City and County cops sit off side of road, catching speeders mostly exiting I-182, headed westbound. Speed limit is 35 and it’s easy on the wide road to add 10.
I see a police car at the bottom of the hill down on East A Street close to Cedar Street on the right side of the street just when the speed limit decreases from 45mph to 35mph, I personally think they should increase A Street going from Oregon Avenue (SR 397) to Cedar Street from 35mph to 45mph cause there aren’t a lot of businesses on that part of the area.
Road 44 drops down a steep hill from Desert Ave. to a round-a-bout. 25 mph speed sign just past the top of the hill and a Pasco cop sits in a turn out just before the round-a-bout facing uphill traffic and records your highest speed at the top of the hill, before you see the 25 mph limit sign and have a chance to slow down. Similar roads in the area have speed limits of 30-35 mph.
They sit on top of the overpass and hit people comming both directions.. very long road two lanes no turns and the speed drops from 70 to 60.
