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: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Beware of this Speedtrap:
NW 150th between Portland and Macarthur
An unmarked silver car hides either in the Monticello neighborhood entrance on the south side of 150th or on the north side of 150th in one of the new Lone Oak additions entrances. I travel up and down this road several times per day and he has someone pulled over almost every time I pass through. This cop has been working this location with much success apparently for months though the location has been worked less consistently for the past 4 years by various unmarked cars and motorcycle cops.
