Phoenix, Arizona Speed Traps
Photo radar sets up on the north side of Thunderbird Road across from a K-8 grade school. West bound on Thunderbird, the speed limit drops (posted) from 40 mph just after intersection at 40 street and Thunderbird to 35 mph (posted west of 40 mph sign about 200 yards). There is no sign posting that the speed limit drops from 40 mph to 35 mph. Photo radar in ford escape puts out sign 50 yards east of vehicle, sometime behind bushes along side of road.

Shooting radar from SUV on right under Cactus Rd. overpass.
