Seattle’s biggest speed traps are just south of Ballard Bridge

If you’ve been nabbed for speeding just after crossing the Ballard Bridge in Interbay, you’re not alone.

According to a report from MyNorthwest, it’s the city’s biggest speed trap. They report that of 3,800 total speeding tickets issued last year, 930 came from the 2600 block of 15th Avenue West, next to the Interbay U-Haul.

The second highest number of tickets were given out just north of there, with police issuing 437 tickets on the 2800 block of 15th Ave W.

It could be that old habits die hard: the area used to be a 40mph zone, but in 2014, dropped to 30mph.
