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: Jackson, Minnesota
Maximum use of landscape to hide enforcement
Beware of this Speedtrap:
Several miles south of Jackson on the Minnesota/Iowa border
Going South of Jackson, MN at the Iowa border, with the speed limit 60 in Minnesota, the speed limit drops off to 55 mph in Iowa. Iowa state troopers take advantage of this as you are coming out of Minnesota. The area is hilly also, providing them good hiding spots.
