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.

Beware of this Speedtrap:
DC295 SW .7miles s/o Exit 1 S/B Nov 2016
Had to be a camera postioned alongside the road. My car is the only one in the picture.I don't ever remember being the only car on that road.So make sure if you are driving through this area stay with a group of cars then you can go any speed you want.They must pick on the single cars going 5 miles to fast and not the group going 20 miles to fast. I always take 295 when traveling south.May have to rethink that decision or just drive 50 miles an hour an have everyone s swearing at me. Slow down on 295!
