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: Cottondale, Florida
Quick drops in posted speed limits creates ticketing activity
Beware of this Speedtrap:
In-between Peanut Rd & Dogwood DR
I was accused of traveling 60 mph in a 45 mph zone which is not fact. My cruise control was set to 35 mph when I saw it drop from 65 to 55 then 45, I assumed the speed would drop to 35, not a problem for me because I was pulling a trailer loaded down with motorcycles and I felt it was a safe speed going through this small town and would give me extra time to brake. The officer who pulled me over was a senior citizen. I believe he is no-longer able to serve and protect but yet Jackson county courts allow this officer to issue bogus tickets for profit while he berates you. My advice is to get an attorney and next time take an alternate route from corrupt Cottondale and it's scheming officers.
