What is a Speed Trap?
Detailed research by the U.S. Department of Commerce has shown that the safest rate of travel is a few miles per hour above the average traffic speed. Enforced speed limits set below that average speed are speed traps, sacrificing safety for revenue.
Speed Trap Round Up: Island Pond, Vermont
Beware: 30 mph posted outside of city
Beware of this Speedtrap:
Along Route 114 north
Late night, the cop sits at the main intersection (Main & Cross) awaiting foreign (Quebec) licence plates to pass. Then he follows the car north along Route 114 for more than a mile which becomes totally just countryside. The speed limit, however, remains 30 MPH! If you can manage to maintain that exasperating slow speed he will turn back at 5 Mile Square Road. I was warned about him and avoided the fine. I will never patronize any business in Island Pond.
