Coral Gables, Florida Speed Traps
cops hiding on the side street shooting Laser as you drive south on Ponce towards Bird Rd. (SW 40th St.)
Police motorcycles and/or cruisers will be parked behind the cars on the southbound side. They hide, and wait for cars to leave from (or fly through) the stoplight on Riviera(usually students late for class) and clock them for going over the ludicrously low 35mph speed limit (average traffic is doing close to 50 here, by the way). You cannot see them until you’re ~250 feet away, at which time they have stepped out into the street and stopped someone. Occasionally, they wait for you to pass, and send a unit out to get you.
Coral Gables Police (Motorcycle) are tucked in behind a tree and around a curve on the northbound side a few times a month in the morning during rush hour (or right after it), armed with their radar gun.
Just past Coral Gables Highschool and the Synagoge, on the north bound lane, there are ususally two or three motorcycle police with radar during morning rush hour. They hide behind a large Banyan tree. They seem to be monitoring both speed and, when traffic is congested, illegal turns and lane changes in the previous intersection.
This is a 4-lane road divided by a median with trees where the speed is set at 30 mph. Motorcycle officers work from the side of the road ticketing people as they do 40+ mph.
