If there is one thing that all 50 states have in common, it's speed traps AKA bear traps or radar traps. It's a location where police have a reputation for writing an unusually high number of speeding tickets.
The most common areas for these hidden traps would be streets where the posted speed limit is not easily seen, or areas of fluctuating speed limits.
It's very easy to catch unsuspecting drivers 'breaking the law' in these particular areas.
They are also found in small towns and cities, usually near a major highway where travelers are unlikely to return to challenge a speeding ticket.
Another way that police manipulate the roads to catch unsuspecting drivers is on long stretches of highway. They'll take two distinct markers on the road and measure the distance between them.
With the use of a stop watch, an officer will calculate how long it takes for a vehicle to cross from one marker to the next.
Once the officer has this time on his stop watch, he'll then use a mathematical formula to calculate your speed. If your speed was above the speed limit, another officer will be radioed further down the road and you (the driver) will be pulled over.
The legality of the whole thing has been debated for years. Politicians and police officers alike have always supported controversial means to ticket drivers by preaching to us that it 'saves lives'.
We all know the real reason is to increase revenue funds. The plain and simple truth to the whole matter is that these deceptive means of traffic enforcement are illegal and unethical. The fleecing of America through speed traps is a multi billion dollar industry!
Protect yourself the next time you're in your car. If you are planning a long (or even short) road trip soon, it's advised that you know what you may be going up against.
