Orange City, Florida Speed Traps
Speed limit is 40 mph clearly marked at beginning of the street and changes to 25 mph just before the resort and sign is obscured by shrubs
As you come into Orange City on E Graves the speed limit drops from 45MPH, to 40MPH and then to 30MPH as you come up a small hill. You had better be doing 30MPH when you come to that sign. The police stand at the edge of the street with a radar gun as you approach the lower speed limit. They will get you ! !
Come to a COMPLETE stop when exiting. Especially at night when it is not busy. The cops watch you from about a half mile down Harley Strictland. Normally, When it is busy (daytime) you could wait up to 5 minutes to exit left so when you come down the hill from the parking lot and see a gap you want to grab it. It amazes me that they don’t have a light there. They will also clock your speed before they stop you on Saxon Blvd. $153.00 Fine + points.
The Orange City Police Department are VERY harsh. It doesn’t matter where you are driving. They are very serious when it comes to the speed limit. I’ve been pulled over for going 33, in a 30 zone.
