PEI Speed Traps on the Trans-Canada Highway

Speed Traps Overview

Radar detectors and laser detectors are illegal to use in Prince Edward Island. Heck, it’s a small province anyway, so speeding won’t save you much time. No photo radar or laser in use yet on PEI.

Please CONTACT US if the information on this page is no longer accurate, and you want to suggest adding or removing noted speed traps in your area or where you have recently traveled.

Speedtraps on the Trans Canada Highway #1

Confederation Bridge

The whole length of the bridge is patrolled by the Borden RCMP , often seen them sitting at the foot of the bridge towards P.E.I with front and back facing radar. Watch your speed real closely, or the bridge toll could be the cheapest part of your trip.


Notorious speed trap. The town police use a Jeep Cherokee as a police vehicle, and are usually set up just after you enter the town from the car ferry. Favorite sites are near the fire hall, or just opposite the weigh scales. Since the town boundaries expanded, they also use the western town boundary, near the McCain plant.

Trans Canada near North River Causeway

Cruiser is parked in the Petro-Canada parking lot overlooking the North River Causeway, but can target a speeding vehicle long before the cruiser could be seen. At the parking lot entrance, they signal the car they spotted to pull over.

Brackley Point Road – Around Airport

City Police park in motel & business parking lots near the airport, and there often 2-4 cruisers. Speed limit is 50 km/h and the police have one cruiser with speed gun pointed to the north and and a second cruiser with speed gun pointed to the south. They then radio the mobile units that are travelling up and down Brackley Point Road which vehicles to stop.

Highway 1 (TCH) – Orwell

Police site at the end of the passing lane going westbound towards Charlottetown from the Wood Island Ferry.

Other PEI Speed Traps

Summerside: Walker ave, summerside pe and Central Street, Summerside

Police are parked on the dirt path rightbefore Clarks Toyota

South Drive – West end of City along Waterfront

City Police constantly patrol this short trek of road which is a 50 km/h zone, though it feels open enough to drive faster than that. Drivers should maintain the speed limit through this area along South Drive, from downtown.
