Fort Myers, Florida Speed Traps
FHP sit about 300 feet past the top of the bridge and radar you as you top the bridge.
Speed limit signs are posted on large yellow signs as one approaches the departure terminal. They start at 35 and then a short distance later as one starts up the ramp, the signs change to small white signs on a white wall. They drop to 20 and then to 10 mph. We were flagged over for 40 in a 20 zone. Very expensive, and certainly poorly marked. Ever hear of a warning ticket for out of state drivers?
Cops sit in the entrance to the School. Summerlin Rd is 50MPH, but it drops down to 40MPH for the school zone.
State Troopers and FMPD love staying in the middle of the divider of colonial and six mile cypress at night with all lights turned off, looking for speeders in either direction.
Temporary 4 mile long construction zone southbound beginning just south of Winkler. 50 MPH limit reduced to 40 MPH. Police from Ft Myers & Lee County (4-6 cars) are difficult to see as they hide behind barrels and road signs at Heritage Palm entrance. Generally trap is manned daily for several hours. This is a true Speed Trap with double fines because of construction. It’s all about $$$$.
