Port Saint Lucie, Florida Speed Traps
Port St Lucie revenue collector sits at the entrance to LOWES in his tax payer funded “ghost car,” clocking westbound folks with la$er. He pops vehicles as they travel downhill from going over the Turnpike. Ea$y pickings on a six lane road with 40 MPH speed limit.
One PSLPD revenue collector sits in his tax payer funded “ghost car,” clocking northbound US-1 traffic with laser. There were two chase cars and on M/C to chase down “offenders.” Speed Limit is 45 MPH on this straight 6 lane highway. Easy pickings.
Selvitz Rd just north of Macedo Blvd. (directly across from Parkway Plaza).
PSLPD, hidden by overgrowth, using laser. This morning they were clocking northbound vehicles. But they also sit in the driveway of the church clocking southbound vehicles. To the best of my knowledge there has never been a wreck caused by speed on that part of Selvitz, and I’ve been living nearby for over 30 years.
Port St Lucie m/c PD using laser. They are either at the church parking lot (nice and shady) or sitting at the stop sign on Manville at Selvitz. They can get traffic going either way on Selvitz. The spot is a real money maker for the city coffers.
I-95 NB every Sunday starting at around 8am, one Trooper sits in the median between Becker Road and Gatlin Blvd with laser/radar gun and catches drivers as the road gently curves to the left. They usually have 5-7 chase cars set further up the road. You can’t see the trap until it’s too late due to the trees and thick brush in the median. Operation usually lasts a couple hours and then they go have breakfast.
