Lawtey, Florida Speed Traps
Placement of signs approaching lawty fl is a dead giveaway as a speed trap. U.S. 301 people are still PO’d about I-95 and I-75 passing them by, those many years ago. That entire corridor is on the black list for the same reason. NOT smart enough to figure out the fact that they could cultivate quite a lot of business, as traveling people do have to make stops, if they did not elect to chase people away with speed tickets, writing tickets for no reason except greed. I could have purchased gas or a number of things there, but thank goodness I was not in need of one thing!! so now i have a speeding ticket. thank you, lawty, florida, may 100 percent of all traffic bypass your town, which is entirely possible. may the town be disenfranchised and removed from the map. TRAVELING PUBLIC: there are ways to bypass lawty florida!!!! please do so!
Speed limit drops from 65 to 55. However cluttered signs can easily lead you to ignore the immediate drop from 55 to 45 (four signs used to reduce speed twice in about 50 feet.) I even saw a billboard a few miles before that says Lawtey Speed Trap 4.5mi! This is definitely a skillfully devised plot to trick people into breaking the law in front of an officer to get their money!
On 301 Near Lawtey Florida an “Officer” gave me a ticket for 66 in a 55 when I thought I was in a 65 zone. I mentioned that the zones seem to change frequently and he said “It’s like that all over the State.”
Afterwards I noticed how frequently the speed zones changed and that at least 4 other people pulled over along the way.
When I went to pay online and noticed that Lawtey Florida came up in a search as a notorious speed trap.
I Called an Attorney and he said it was the second call that day for the same area.
It’s 65mph…10sec later 55mph, then 10sec. 45mph!!!! There is something sooooo WRONG about this!!!
