This will be a work in progress and I plan on adding plenty more mostly all relating to Interstate and Turnpike traps. Feel free to add your own known speed trap locations. More the better!

Ok, here is my first. This is located on I-81 North in the Wilkes-Barre Scranton area just before you get to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton airport (AVP).

The trap car tucks behind the bridge at MM 175.1 and the multiple chase cars line up on the ramp noted in the screenshot.

Be careful on this whole section of 81 North and South through all of Wilkes-Barre and Scranton because they have designated it a "Safety Corridor" thus doubling the fines. There are road signs that tell you when the "Safety Corridor" starts. Also, it is PSL 55 for this whole corridor.

I would also like to ask keeping comments to a minimum so this thread stays fairly clutter free so, we can just get to the posted traps with less hassle.

Perhaps PM the poster if you have any questions or comments.

This is MM 163 2/10 on I-81 in the Wilkes-Barre area. Trap can be used to get either N or S lanes but, mostly North bound traffic. Once again, this is also in the "Safety Corridor" so, fines are doubled.

I-81 at MM 148 4/10. They hit both N and S traffic.

I-81 N MM 139.4 Best setup is to hit the N bound lane with the curve but, can also target S bound.

I-81 N or S MM137.1 Well hidden location. Can't see them until its way too late. Pretty self explanatory where the hiding spot is.

I-81 N or S MM123.4. Street shot is from N bound lane.

I-81 N only MM 120.4. This is a very active and sneaky spot in road curve and behind trees.

I-81 S MM105.4. Once again, come around the bend and they're just hidden behind the tree line. They can use this spot to hit N too but, hitting S is their best cover for a trap.

Just a general area to be careful near Ravine Exit 104. It's a fairly active section of I-81.

I-81 N MM 95. Very well hidden spot and very active trap just behind the berm of dirt! They could hit S but, once again the hiding spot for hitting N lane is just too good.

I-81 N & S MM 91 area. Sometimes they will just sit in the wide open. Near the 78 split.

I-81 N 134.8 Another sneaky hiding spot just behind the trees in a bend in the road! The street view is what the bear sees as you round the bend.

476 S MM78.1 I don't drive 476 often but there are many places like this that they can tuck right in behind a berm such, as this known spot. Apparently, there was construction equipment in the street view but, not normally the case.

Thanks! Yes, that's just past my second posting at the 163MM. Very sneaky spot and I haven't seen them there before so, thanks for the heads up! I'll grab a G maps overhead screen shot and post it later tonight of that trap.

Just an FYI, I-81N MM163 area actually has a total of three spots they can hide for speed traps. @stano0098 video identifies one of the other spots they can hide around MM163 and just before that spot in his video they can hide in the one bend just behind the Nanticoke exit sign.
