Default Most insane speed trap I've ever seen

I was travelling south on the Spaulding Turnpike (Rt 16). Just as the road forks either left ( Rt 95 points in Maine) or right (Rt 95 points south) I see a NH State Trooper standing in the middle of the fork pointing his radar gun at oncoming traffic. He was standing in front of his motorcycle and no lights were flashing. The officer and his bike were not very large targets so they were hard to see.
All it would take is one inattentive driver to head to the center of the fork. The officer would not have time to move out of the way. This area is confusing and I've seen many drivers swerve left or right as they realize which fork they need to take. Not a lot of thought went into the placement of this speed trap.
