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: Kiowa, Oklahoma
Beware of this Speedtrap:
I was driving to Tulsa and going 70mph, slowed down when I saw the small town ahead and the 60mph sign. There was light traffic and I was going with traffic. Once I passed the town I got pulled over, he didn't tell me why he pulled me over, he just asked for my id and ins card. After 5 min, he came back and handed me a citation. I asked him why he pulled me over and he said I was going 52 in a 40 zone. I turned around to look at the signs. The 60mph and 40mph sign was so close together, even if I had saw the sign it would have to brake hard to get it to 40. This town is a joke and so are the cops. If the city was worried about the people crossing the street and getting killed, they should put up a light. What a way to generate money.
