Crestview, Florida Speed Traps
The HP unit was in a low spot in the median where it could look up at westbound traffic in the left lane (about 20 feet). It was an unmarked vehicle.
FHP work north 85 almost daily the will sit in median using marked an un marked cars.
This is a great place for them lately the road has a good curve in it to hide and a small hill they park by the development entrances.
If you go down redstone past the Hospital the police are all up and down this road. Not just at school times either. THe road is 25 MPH and secluded for long stretches so it is easy to speed a little, which is probably why the cops hide in the grassy wooded areas to the sides of the road.
This Is a New One!!! Speed limit was 45 for years but recently was changed to 35 with no notice or apparent reason. Crestview PD have been using unmarked and marked cars to target speeders in this area. On one occasion, officers were standing on the side of the road with a radar gun and flagging down speeders near the intersection of Villacrest Dr. Coming off Hwy. 85 it is easy to accelerate to 45 or 55 without even realizing it. Be careful!
