Seattle, Washington Speed Traps
Long moderately steep hill. M/C and/or traffic officers setup to nab folks going down the hill. Hill is steep enough to make you ride the brakes fairly hard to stay at 30 mph.
An officer stands on the overpass hiding behind a light post, and another waits in the car on the Corson St. onramp.
I sometimes see them early in the morning on my way towards Northgate mall on the left side in a squad car and also around 10am – 11am once in a while on the right side on motor bike sitting on one of the dead end streets radaring everyone passing by.
On the viaduct northbound about a quarter mile south of the Battery Street Tunnel entrance, the speed drops to 40. As you exit the tunnel into daylight, there will almost always be a Seattle radar cop sitting at the stop sign right next to KING TV. All of Aurora Avenue from the Battery Street Tunnel up past Green Lake is a speed trap.
Motorcycle cops sit in the parking lot of Seattle Pacific University just east of 3rd NW, hiding behind parked cars when school is in session. They get cars coming down the hill heading west in a 30 mph spped zone. The cops will only use this trap when it is clear and school is in session, as they need the parked cars to hide behind.
