Sequim, Washington Speed Traps
Troopers lie in wait out of sight to pick off the last car in a line of traffic traveling east on 101 at speeds 5 to 10mph over posted speed.
East of Sequim on Hwy 101 from MP 267 to the intersection of Hwy 20 ( to Port Townsend) between MP 282 and MP 283. State troopers will sit hidden on intersecting roads, old logging and power line roads, even private drives. Be careful when going down hill, rounding a curve or cresting a hill.
The speed limit is 55 except by the casino which is 50. The traffic moves at 60 which means anyone can get a ticket at any time. At times there are 3-4 troopers working the area. The patrol cars are both marked and unmarked of different makes, models and colors.
State Troopers will park along the Soundbound Lane in the middle of the overpass and monitor both East and Westbound traffic along US 101. They are able to monitor Eastbound the same way. Sequim PD does the same thing and also park on the upper part of the exit ramp off of Sequim Ave. Exit. Stay Alert in this corridor! Radar only means you are getting a speeding ticket that much faster.
The State Patrol calls this stretch of 101 between the Dungeness River Bridge and Carlsborg Rd the fishbowl. They ususally hide on the north side of 101 in several loacations and use radar.
They hide behind a curve in US101 and watch traffic Eastbound from Sequim Av. They have nothing against exagerating how much you were doing over their mind numbingly slow 55MPH
