"Their traps go beyond speeding. Arvada poaches I-70 by sitting off the road stopped with their lights on. Regardless of the 6 feet off the road they are, will pull anyone over for not giving them a full lane. It's an automatic court date on a 4-point ticket. Really freaking pathetic and a safety hazard to be abusing emergency signals without cause."

"Where Brighton turns into Broadway, just as you go under the bridge heading into the city. I see them there, on foot, almost every time i drive past. Drops from 35 to 30 as you go downhill. It's almost unfair but they are there so often it's expected."

"I was waved over by the one off of 29th & Zuni after turning onto 29th (from Zuni) along the side of North HS. I was driving the regular speed limit b/c there were no flashing lights indicating an active school zone at the time and there were NO kids present whatsoever. The cop was a complete @ss about it despite those factors."

"There is also a spot on N. Sheridan somewhere between Florida & Alameda where there is often a radar van parked, been popped there before.... Def keep an eye out if in that area, especially given the ridiculously low speed limit on that stretch, easy to exceed it even if driving a reasonable speed."

"Aurora's chief revenue officers. Its like a APD laser light show on Airport Blvd every day."
