Oakland Park, Florida Speed Traps
Speed trap police cars with laser late night 12-3am or so. Beware…..
Motorcycle cop(s) sit in strip mall parking lot with radar gun. Usually before 8am while traffic is still light.
Eastbound: about 300 or 400 block of Prospect. Westbound, about 100 or 200 Block of Prospect. Not often, but look out beginning and end of month.
Eastbound: Around 1540 E Commercial Blvd. just past McDonalds on the right (as your heading eastbound).
Westbound: NE 12th or 13th Ave, Past Pirhana Pat’s and just before approaching tracks before Dixie Hwy.
Noticed two deputies checking eastbound traffic yesterday (4/27/10). Today, I noticed pneumatic tubes across road suggesting a traffic survey is in place. Oakland Park seems to have a ‘heads-up’ on when FDOT is surveying specific spots and does selective speed enforcement just prior to FDOT survey.
Going West on Floranda just about 500ft before the small bridge on the right side of the road there is a set of bushes and large trees that BSO motorman sits behind and clocks you coming down westbound. During the hours of 8:00am to sometimes after 2:00pm
