White Salmon, Washington Speed Traps
Unsuspecting Motorists from out of town Beware. As you are coming Down the HIll on Dock Grade Road and just as you see the gorgeous view of the Columbia River Gorge, there is a speed limit sign of 25 mph as you go around a bend. Even with your brakes on going down this steep hill, it is nearly impossible to do 25. There are Three speed limit signs on the way up the hill (where it is very hard to speed) but only one coming down and the one signs coming down the hill is strategically placed so you can’t see it. Also of note, the posted speed limits through the entire town range from 15-25 mph. Cop hides behind a wall at the bottom of the highway. As you come down the hill there are numerous trees that would block your view of his police car. I suspect they need to fund a building for their police department as it appears they don’t have one. $200.00 ticket. I have an excellent driving record and a warning would have sufficed but this cop wouldn’t hear of it. My guess is he had a quota for Labor Day weekend.
