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: Tucson, Arizona
Multiple motorcycle cops positioned to issue tickets.
Beware of this Speedtrap:
Houghton & Drexel
2-3 times a month, up to 6 ( yes 6! ) TPD motorcycle officers sit at Drexel & Houghton, also Poorman & Bilby and "in mass" pull over people leaving for work ( 6:30-8:30am ) onto Houghton because it is a large working community ( not retired ) but will give all sorts of interesting tickets including "leader of the pack" even if you are not speeding. In May 2018 we observed 3 days in a row 6 TPD motorcycle officers each day because of the massive revenue they were generating. Even vendors are warned coming in to the neighborhood, folks this is not going to stop so leave early/leave late or avoid.
