Spokane, Washington Speed Traps
Couple of blocks north of Francis on Monroe on the west side of the street is a church and both AM and PM rush hour there is often LEO’s sitting there. The limit drops from 35 to 30 right after the split from wall to monroe and just as you round the bend the LEO’s will pop you. It’s usually a motorcycle cop sitting behind the church sign so enforcement isn’t as high in the winter months.
WSP Officer sitting on one of the cross streets to Bernard Street, poaching, on a motorcycle, especially during daylight (school) hours – LC High School is just west of this location – rarely a Spokane Police Dept officer
The closest place to fuel a rental car is in Airway heights a mile from the airport along State Highway 2. The local Airway Heights police department likes to watch those out of towners fueling and then nab us on the way to catch our flights. We can’t put up much of a fight as we have to catch our flights and who has time to go back and argue the ticket? Pretty slick deal for the local cofers. I know of 3 of us who travel frequently to Spokane that have been ticketed. Speed limts change frequently in this area.
A couple of blocks north of Francis there is a church on the west side of the road. Morning commute is really bad but I’ve seen the enforcement escalated in other times of the day. The posted speed limit is 30 mph and it right after a school zone but it�s a section of road that is very easy to go 40. The LEO�s will hang out right behind the church sign and nab a lot of southbound traffic.
The cops like to hide around blind corners and under bridges where they are not as likely to be spotted.
