Platteville, Wisconsin Speed Traps
There is a speed trap located near the edge of town on business Highway 151 (headed toward Dubuque) at the Platteville Tourist Information center. Local police and State Patrol both sit here frequently to catch motorists entering town too fast from the south, and also motorists prematurely picking up speed as they head out of town. The police also like to sit in the parking lots of the two pizza joints immediately surrounding the tourist center.
When going North on 151 just after coming into Platteville there is a stop light. After that light is a tall hill there is only one strip mall on the left side of the road so it looks like going up this hill you are exiting town. be careful your are not exiting this town, so do not speed up. Officer "I don’t look old enough to be a cop" sits at the top just down a ways so you can’t see him till you are well over the hill and he has your speed on his RADAR.
