Cape Coral, Florida Speed Traps
Unmarked car sitting at median facing North. This usually happens at night at any week day.
Traveling north from Cape Coral Parkway in the right lane with at least 8 other cars doing same speed. As we slowed to turn on to Savona, car with flashing lights appears and turns with us. Says we were doing 50 in a 35. Beware of signs going from 45 to 35 in seconds. We were last in the group and the only one stopped. Two cops in the car and the donation will be $163. Just like Waldo was. Sad. Don’t think we were going that fast, but if we were so was everyone else.
Unmarked car sits in front of the high school, officer’s car is parked in the center grass , This 4 lane 3/4 mile road has a speed limit of 35mph. Speed is gathered as you come around the turn driving west.
Cape Coral and Lee County Sheriff cars sit in the median and on the west side of Veterans, in the shade.
This trap began in response to at least one death from kids racing from Surfside to Pine Island Road.
Section from Chiquita to Skyline is 40 mph, changes to 35 mph from Skyline to Santa Barbara. Cops are hidden in the esplanade separating eastbound and westbound lanes. Also, if you try to drive straddling the manhole covers that stick up a few inches above street level in order to avoid either a bumpy ride or possible alignment problems, you will get a ticket.
