DEFINITELY watch out for cops.
The two most prevalent radar traps are the stretch just north of the Everett through Smokey Point. (the speed limit changes to 70 as you pass Smokey Point) Both Directions.

And the next area is northbound from just past the North Lake Samish exit past the Chuckanut Drive (The north end) exit as you enter Bellingham. They practically live there and they feast on Canadians. They occasionally patrol the southbound side as well.


Keep it 3 or 4 over. They won't bother you.

About the border... the time of day and day of the week will impact wait times. Early morning heading north is a breeze. But as a rule, entering the US is going to take some time. If you're heading to Vancouver, be aware of the truck stop option. SR543 can save you a ton of time. You'll see wait times on an electronic reader as you enter Bellingham and again as you approach Blaine.

Now, almost 20 years after she's affraid to travel to the states. Does anyone know about that????
I mean it's been almost 20 years, i don't think that she's still registered.
Thanks for a respond!
I wouldn't risk it. They are all over that stuff.

Is the border crossing construction on I-5 north of Blaine been completed?
