Davenport, Florida Speed Traps
This area was known as Baseball City. It is not in the city limits of Davenport or Haines City, but has a Davenport address. Locals know this area is a notorious speed trap enforced by Highway Patrol and County Sherrif’s Office. Tickets are written almost continuously in this area. Also, watch out for the no U-turns. You have to drive considerably out of the area before you can make a U-turn. You can be caught in a turning lane to get on I-4 and have to drive for miles to turn around before you realize you can’t make the U-turn. It is deliberately confusing with the lowering of speeds and No U-turn signs.
Usually an unmarked FHP car sits facing West approx. 1/2 mile West of Master’s Blvd. When travelling Eastbound on Tri-County, the patrol car can see you close to a mile before you will see him. With new development nearby, the road has been posted at 40mph, whereas before Summer 2010, there was no posting at all.
Traveling Eastbout on FV Grove Rd., once you pass Bahama Bay, the speedlimit remains at 35mph, but the road opens up. It’s easy to find yourself traveling over 45mph and I frequently see people pulled over by the Polk County Sheriff. There is also a School Zone at the end of that open stretch so beware.
Police cars marked and unmarked sit on the side of California Blvd near Nevada Loop to catch speeders and people not stopping at Stop signs.
Unmarked police cars are parked on side driveways on Ronal Reagan Blvd.
