SW 11th St & SW 11th Ave near 9th Ave (Williston-Waldo Rd).

Gainesville, FloridaJun 13, 20160 Comments

The cops (city & Sheriff) sit behind the crosswalk lines on SW 11th Ave, just off SW 11th St. south of 9th Ave. (which is also known to the locals as Williston-Waldo Rd). They target the southbound traffic on SW 11th St./Williston-Waldo Rd. by sitting around the bend in the road by the Lincoln Middle School. As you come southbound on SW 11th St./Waldo, there is a bend in the road near SW 11th Ave. The limit is 35 but goes up to 45 just 100 feet past SW 11th Ave. They know all the locals speed up for the increased speed limit. Fortunately, a GPD officer got rapped for lying in traffic court saying he was at SW 10th Ave, and not SW 11th Ave near the bend. He got a suspension of a few days and loss of salary.

This is a residential area with a 30 MPH speed limit. Everything around it is 45 MPH. The police park near intersections and clock motorists turning off connecting streets and continue at 40-45 MPH. 10 MPH over is around $170 and 15 MPH over is $240. Great revenue generator. They also enforce pedestrian crossings near these intersections. Do 25 and be ready to yield the right of way anytime.

Westbound on University Ave, between UF and 34th

University Ave winds and reminds drivers that the speed limit is 35, and then there is a large downhill section just before 34th st. Without fail a motorcycle cop will be waiting at the bottom of the hill. Was ticketed here for going 47 in the 35, but I had my cruise control set to 40 – – – should have been paying attention to the hill!! Reminder to all to MIND THE HILL!

Paynes Prairie – I-75 Corridor

They are using a confiscated silver escalade with spinning hubs on the wheels and the blue lights are under neath the escalade. Yes – I said under neath the truck and not VISABLE TO THE NAKED EYE There are no marking on the SUV. The sliver escalade is well mixed into the pack and they pull you over for a variety of charges ( following to closely is the number one entrapment tools followed by illegal lane change) The exit ramp at both Williston road (exit 382) and Archer (exit 384) are also speed traps where you exit I-75 only to find out you go from 70mph to 25 mph…which is nearly impossible if you have other cars trialing you off the interstate.
