Melbourne Beach, Florida Speed Traps
Cops hide on Oak street just beyond the road curve near Gemini Elementary School. They do this in the daytime. Also they hide mixed in with parked cars in the parking lots of the condos on SR A-1-A just south of Ocean Avenue, where you can’t distinguish them from the parked cars. They especially do this at night where you can’t see them at all.
As a retired police officer with over 34 years of service in another state, I’ve got to say this speed trap is an embarrassment to the Town of Melbourne Beach. Radar enforcement here is relentless. Come on guys, spend more time interacting with your community. Walk your business district, beach, pier, neighborhoods etc. Meet the people in the area. It will be fun and they will love it.
