Florida Highway Patrol and Putnam County Sherriff’s Department Deputies sit at the halfway point of South Palm Avenue with cars parked off the road, this is a long 2 lane road with a speed limit of 35 mph, with a posted school crossing and school warning lights stating 20 mph during school hours, all cars that are hit with radar will be a frontal shot, the trooper or deputy will then walk out to the road and flag you down and issue you a ticket. Most people caught will be doing 45-55 mph on this 35 mph stretch of road. The speed trap is about the halfway point down South Palm Avenue so beware, have a radar detector and stay close to the speed limit. South Palm Avenue runs north and south providing a connecting path between highway 20 and Silver Lake Road.
