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: Winnipeg, Manitoba
Officer in van or pickup ready to catch drivers as they enter lower speed construction zone.
Beware of this Speedtrap:
Waverley St. near Willson Pl
The officer is often in a white van or red pickup truck with pylons surrounding the vehicle. I've seen them there in the morning while going to work and evening while driving home (weekdays). The van seems to be there pretty much everyday. The speed limit is reduced from 70 km to 50 km as you are about to near construction.
