S.W. 35th Place

Gainesville, FloridaApr 14, 20101 Comments

A motorcycle cop sits behind the bushes after the first curve going east on S.W. 35th Place. This is the road just off 34th Street by the Kangaroo. The speed limit on this road is only 30 mph, so it’s easy to get a huge ticket. Sometimes a whole slew of cops, motorcycles and otherwise, will be waiting for drivers through there. Be careful!

Also, don’t flash your lights at other drivers if you notice the speedtrap. Other unmarked cops are waiting for you to do that and will write you a bogus ticket based on an unsupportive statute. My husband got a ticket on this road for this "offense."

U.S. Hwy. 441 near Payne’s Prairie

Be very careful approaching the south side of the prairie from either direction, but especially from the south. They hide in the trees of the median.

They enforce heavily around the beginning/end of college semester (University of Florida is just three miles from there) and during holiday seasons like Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, and Spring Break. They love to milk students, but they are hard up for cash & hit everyone else then.
