Mount Dora, Florida Speed Traps
Traveling south on Dora Avenue from unincorporated Orange County, the road switches names once and then becomes Clayton. Cresting a hill the speed drops to 45mph and shortly thereafter to 25mph. City police, who write a record number of tickets for speeding in Lake County, are there in the am, just when you are heading to work or school to step out of a side street with radar. There are no breaks in this city.
Lately using radar and watching fo seat belt violations on Round Lake just south of SR 46 and just south of Sullivan Ranch Entrance at blind corner.
Mt. Dora PD (especially motorcycle police) hide near an orange grove on 11th Ave. near the top of the hill at all times of day and night and if motorists are speeding”in excess of the posted 25 mph they are ticketed. This is a difficult area to maintain a 25 mph speed since it is hilly and motorists must ride their brakes to maintain this low speed.
From old 441 heading south on Clayton St after the stop sign continuing down grade. Speed limit is 25. Local Police seem to like to stop out of state plates – The Old South still lives. (Mount Dora, Lake County)
