Spokane, Washington Speed Traps
A sheriff’s deputy will sometimes camp on this road and get people’s speeds, especially when school is getting out (CV is very close by and a lot of kids like to speed up this way). It’s 25 MPH, which is slow, but don’t be too tempted to speed up in this area.
Police frequently sit at the bottom third of steep hills mainly on the south hill area on main arterial in the vicinity of 9th to 12th ave.
Speed drops from 50 to 35. State patrol is sitting exactly at the 35 sign.
This is a downhill street on the field house side of LC. The speed limit drops from 30mph to 20mph due to school zone. Motorcycle cops will sit in the alley between 4th & 5th Ave or under the freeway underpass.
The posted speed sign sits right behind a large tree near the light on 6th Ave. During the spring, summer, and fall you can’t even see the sign due to the leaves and branches. You should slow down anyway but keep and eye out especially on sunny days when the students are out and about.
During the summer months the cops sit all along the park(sometimes IN the park). The speed limit is lowered to 20mph during the summer. I watch the cops wait for the offender to go past, wait for a few seconds, then proceed to drive 50-60 mph+ to catch up. The cops create a far more dangerous situation than the ‘speeders’. Motorcycle cops will actually pull up into the park and set up with their SMDs. If anyone else were to drive in the park, they would most likely be ticketed. Speeding tickets are rarely about safety but nearly always about revenue.
