Saint Petersburg, Florida Speed Traps
The entire perimeter of Northeast high school is loaded with speed traps. They can be right after the cemetary as you crest the hill on 54th Ave N. or they could be on the side roads of 16th street. Since NEHS covers about 12 square blocks, they have a lot of room to work. And since tickets are higher in school zones, they usually setup one guy with Lidar and have 50 police cars on side roads that grab people one at a time.
They hide under the 54th street overpass almost every day. You can speed before and after 54th with no problem, but slow down as you get to the overpass. They also put a guy in the bushes right after the overpass going north. Then you see they aren’t under the overpass and speed up only to get hit by the guy in the bushes.
I-275 N/S at 54th Ave. N. exit in the median and northward to the the Gandy BLVD exit, you will often find state troopers in droves. It’s a very well coordinated event, with more blue lights in one place that you thought possibly employed. Usually done in the afternoon, before the big rush and also on weekends.
After big events in Tampa police officers wait at the first lights off of bridges and catch people who run red lights and are speeding. This also helps them catch drunk drivers.
