Panama City Beach, Florida Speed Traps
the road is divided 4 lane and the speed drops from 65 to 55 to 45 in less than a mile..impossible to do that unless standing on brakes..actually this is the 2nd place along that road South of Ebro the highway posted speed drops rapidly. This is near the new airport also.
The entrance/exit to the new airport is long and wide with a posted 45mph speed limit. An experienced driver would by instinct go faster if unaware of the limit. It’s actually difficult to go 45mph and an experienced driver would need to make a conscience effort to do so. Nonetheless, the airport police have unmarked cars with radar taking advantage of the situation and ruining many people’s travels. What a welcome to Panama City Beach!
Highway 98 new Hathaway Bridge Highway Patrol westbound side Panama City Police eastbound side 45 mph so easy to go 60 or more the bridge will be paid for in no time!
Entering Hathaway Bridge and Thomas Drive overpass from either direction. Entering The Panama City Beach area or Leaving the Beach and entering Panama City Saint Andrew Area. High incidences of Florida Highway Patrol and local law enforcement ticketing.
FHP Troopers will hide in the median just before reaching the Phillips Inlet Bridge. The road curves as you pass Front Beach Road heading West. The speed limit goes from 55 to 45 as you approach the bridge. They will also get you comming the other direction as you can not see them until you are about to come off the bridge.
