Spokane, Washington Speed Traps
When entering Spokane Falls Blvd. from the west off Division and heading towards Hamilton, there is one 30mph speed limit sign that entire distance. It sits 50 feet on Spokane Falls Blvd. just off Division. The Police will sit in the parking lot just west of Habitat of Humanity building with laser. They snag drivers in the east bound direction as they drive around the curve of the street just before the river bridge. In front of Washington State University, between N Riverpoint Blvd. and N Pines Rd.
Motorcycle cops work radar from side streets, usually on the south side of Francis (it’s a wide, no-curb-parking 4 lane arterial, signed for 35, but local traffic tends toward 40-45mph). I got pulled over in my convertible sports car going east @ 45+, trying to make the light at Indian Trail, but got off with a warning. The cop asked why I didn’t have the top down on such a warm sunny day. Take-home message: "drive safely but lower the top when climate dictates". I’m cool with that.
Sneaky Stater hidden 1/3 of the way down Sunset Hill.
If you are traveling north on Wall St (35mph) and happen to veer right on Whitworth Dr. (25 mph) be careful motorcycle radar unit will sometimes set up on the right side in the first driveway. You need to slow down to 25 mph immediately on Whitworth Dr. I was stopped there and argued to, no avail, that he was being extremely sneaky for setting up there. A few days later I took the same route and the radar unit was set up a couple of driveways further east.
They sit on a side road on the right, toward the top of the hill (Northbound). It’s a construction zone so you’ll get a huge ticket. It’s a pretty dangerous stretch of road (Farwell to Mt. Spokane Park Drive) with construction distractions, narrow lanes, no street lights, etc. Slow down and save yourself some money! The speed limit is 45!!!
