Longwood, Florida Speed Traps
Eastbound on 434 at the intersection of Rangeline and 434. Not only speed traps at various cross streets, but patrols sitting to monitor complete stops at stop signs. Do not do the “California Roll”” — rolling through the sign —or you can be socked with a $90 ticket.
Mostly motorcyle police and sometime unmarked cars, SUV’s or trucks. This area is unconstruction at the present time.
There is a lake on the corner of these two roads. The cops like to back up into bushes and run radar. I have seen them all times of the day and night there. Everyone I know in my neighborhood has been stopped at one point in time or another. Some even were stopped for just 5 over!
A lot of people traveling northbound on 17-92 will take a left (west) onto E Wildmere Avenue and then right (north) onto S Grant to get to SR 434 (S Grant meets 434 where the 7-11 and Circle K are located) and avoid the intersection at 434/17-92 in the late afternoon/evening. There is regularly a motorcycle cop who will park his bike on E Lake, out of the view of traffic on S Grant, and stand behind the bushes of the house on the Northwest corner of the intersection and clock the Northbound traffic. You will not see him or his bike until you’ve already been clocked, so be careful. The speed limit on S Grant is 25 mph.
This road is also known as CR 427. When heading Northbound from SR 434, a marked car can regularly be found on the right-side, just after the Preppy Pets Suites AKA Doggy Daycare, on the side street (Corporate Way) clocking traffic. The road is four lanes with a wide, raised center median and the speed limit is only 40 mph. The common speed of traffic on this road regularly exceeds 45 mph and there are problems with cars and motorcycles that will regularly fly down this stretch of road in excess of 70mph, so enforcement is strict.
