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
Originally posted March 2018 with plenty of supporting votes since then that this is a legitimate speed trap.
Beware of this Speedtrap:
Officer isn't a person you want to mess with, just take the ticket and stay quiet, (his M-O is to bring you up on charges) even If you are issued a fraudulent citation, my advice to you is to pay it! Do not, and I repeat, Do NOT! go to court. Doing so will be very costly for you. The city of Cottondale rakes in more than a quarter of a million dollars a year speed trapping travelers along with issuing bogus speeding citations. Yes you are a victim of corruption but you are also just another statistic. My very expensive advice to you is take another route and avoid this town at all cost.
