East Windsor

East Windsor, Connecticut

Police on On Ramps of Exit 46 getting on 91 North, but maybe south too, have been stopping cars saying its for safety, Alcoholism check. Its usually one cop with a little flashlight harassing people, they tend to do that in this town. So if your trying to get on the highway expect to be stopped and harassed because the police department is over staffed and out of money.

RT 5 under I291

South Windsor, Connecticut

Officers from several towns frequently man this spot covering North and South bound RT 5 under I 291 in South Windsor for a federally funded DUI and seat belt check point. There is a cue of 5 - 7 officers in each direction and sometimes tow trucks on stand by should you be asked to pull to the side for additional tests.

If you see it soon enough you can avoid it by - South bound get on I291 or North bound right on RT 30.

Spenser St Over I 384

Manchester, Connecticut

Several officers from several towns frequently man this road block funded by the federal government for DUI and seat belt checks. It is a 4 lane road in which the right lanes are open for the cue line of officers to inspect you. The left lanes are closed for a staging area of police cars, support vehicles and tow trucks.

You can avoid it if traveling East by getting on I384 or West by getting on the 384/84/291 entrance ramp. I have heard there are chase cars if they think you are avoiding the check point but I have never seen them do this.

Entrance ramp to I-91 / Rt 15 south from Airport Road

Hartford, Connecticut

Several times a year – always in nice weather, of course – state troopers set up a seat belt check/enforcement on the entrance ramp to Rt15/I-191 south from Airport Road. If you're coming from the city you cannot see it until you turn onto the ramp; if you're coming from the airport direction you'll get stuck in the left turn lane and have to go that way. There is no escape once you do, and you don't have time to put on your belt before they see you.

They do not directly STOP you, but two troopers stand encroaching into the travel lane on each side, so you are forced to slow down so they can observe you. If you are observed without a belt you are told to pull over to the right side, off the ramp.

On Ramp to I-95 South

Clinton, Connecticut

Checking for seat belts.

This Connecticut roadblock was added to the Roadblock Registry in November 2010.
