I-10 Marianna, Florida
The area just west of Exit 136 is used for training new FHP Officers. I have seen as many as 6 autos pulled over at the same time with another officer waiting in his car for a stop. One recent trick was to have a FHP car on an over pass with a radar gun looking at oncoming westbound traffic and calling for the stops to the waiting patrol cars. In addition to speed related stops they are strictly enforcing the new law that requires a vehicle to move to the center lane or reducing speed when passing a patrol car stopped on the right side of the road. I have seen the same concentrated activity by FHP at various times from exit 136 to exit 120. Usually westbound close to exit 136 and eastbound close to exit 120.
Additionally, in this area, you need to watch the skys for airplanes and helicopters. The FHP was parked on an access road, just waiting for a call from the airborne unit, then came flying (no pun intended) off the ramp. Definately an area to stay very close to the posted speeds.
