Parkland, Florida Speed Traps
Cops like to sit either in the median directly in front of the main entrance to Parkland Isles, or sit in the turn lanes on Coral Ridge directly in front of the community.
From Holmberg Road towards 441. Holmberg is 35 even as it opens to a four lane blvd style road. BSO officer likes to sit on either side pulled back into subdivision entrances, all hours and all days. There is no leniency. None.
1 or 2 BSO cars sit int he parking lot 1/4 mile south of Loxahatchee road and use radar to get speeders in the 30 mph zone. They also sit in or south of the Park trails elementary on the same road. Be careful.
Officers hide in the median when it is dark, just west of University to catch speeders in a 35MPH zone. Holmberg is two lanes and 35MPH is mighty slow for a two-lane road with left turn lanes and right turn lanes going into the different communities.
Holberg Rd between Rte 441 and Riverside Dr. Only 1 lane in each direction except within approx. 1/4 mile of Rte 441. Posted limit is 30 mph and its very easy to be 10 mph (or more) over the limit and not realize it because 30 feels so slow. BSO took over from the now extinct Parkland P.D. and they give tickets to speeders liberally (no warnings!)Don’t pass because you get impatient behind someone driving at 30 mph. Especially avoid naturally speeding up when heading east and Holmberg goes to 2 lanes before 441. Its a ticket for sure.
