Lakewood Ranch, Florida Speed Traps
Police hide behind trees with speed guns, especially as parents and teachers are diving to and from school. They radio ahead and a police vehicle that was hiding in a drive way will pull up behind you
Manatee Sheriffs like to shoot laser north towards the southbound lane of traffic as it comes over the rise 1/4 of a mile from the Balmoral Woods gate entrance to Lakewood Ranch, while parking their cruisers on the street across (west) of the gatehouse and standing on the side of Lakewood Blvd.
7 cars pulled over W bound. Either speeding or running Mill Run stop sign.
