Re: Speed Traps In Your Area!

This was cool! I posted. In some ways I feel like I got back at the redneck that gave me a ticket in my town. He asked me
THREE times if I knew why he pulled me over. I got mad and said I dont know I guess you need Christmas money. Next thing out of his mouth is I guess I will have to write you a citation. I am not begging big boy I will pay my 50 dollar fine and move along. He said I didnt come to a complete stop before crossing four lanes of traffic. What Bull$hit! I had to stop because of all the cars! This town is well know for patrolling out of their city and busting people to make a buck. Lowlife! First ticket ever not that I havent deserved some but I hope he bought himself a steak dinner and choked on it. This was just stupid.

Re: Speed Traps In Your Area!

Speed trap

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


A police officer checking speed with a hand-held radar device.The term speed trap refers to a point where speed limits are strictly enforced by police. It is generally understood as meaning a specific location in which police wait in concealment. For example, a police car might wait behind a bridge or overpass, out of sight of approaching motorists, but has also been applied to locations where a speed camera is posted.

In California traffic law, evidence obtained from speed traps (as specifically defined, see "Speed trap" in California traffic law[1]) is not admissible. A speed trap usually means a speed limit that is arbitrarily set, not related to prevailing speeds or hidden dangers, or a speed limit that is enforced by manually measuring travel times over a measured distance. Photo enforcement for traffic signals measure vehicle speeds to set the beginning of the yellow signal indication phase. Some courts have ruled that this is not a speed trap.

The term speed trap is usually used by motorists, not by enforcement officers. It may be considered pejorative, and use of the term may suggest the appearance of speed enforcement by concealed means or excessively strict speed enforcement.

Speed traps have been used since the beginning of the 20th Century as a means to enforce speed limits, and Britain's Automobile Association was set up specifically to notify members of speed traps.

Cities or road sections become known as speed traps where police have a reputation for writing an unusually high number of traffic tickets, especially speeding tickets. Sometimes the posted speed limits are not easily seen; in other places, the limits might be set excessively low.

Speed traps often are found in poor small towns, often near major highways, in which travelers are less likely to return and challenge a ticket. Speed trap towns typically have an unusually large percentage of their local workforce dedicated to traffic law enforcement or judiciary occupations. Furthermore, traffic fines make up an unusually large percentage of income for speed trap towns by preying on tourists and travelers.
