St. Petersburg, Florida Speed Traps
Approximately between the 38th and 54th Ave exits of I-275 for the northbound side there is first a slight hill that goes down more than it rises and the straight ahead view is blocked by an overpass. So as you come down that hill you cannot traffic, or the state trooper ahead. The state trooper hides on the right side on the grassy bank of the on-ramp. By the time you see it, it would be too late. This state trooper is there sporadically, but often enough that I always go 65mph, the posted speed limit. Watch for cars slowing down in front of you already at the bottom of the hill, and by no means speed down that hill with no other cars around!
A motorcycle cop will position himself behind a sign at the Bob Lees auto service and radar the traffic headed north out of downtown. The speed limit is 35, but once you break past all those downtown traffic lights it’s easy to get caught up in the escape. and there they are.
They sit in Checker’s parking lot and watch people leaving Publix not wearing seatbelts. Then they have a motorcycle patrolman or another vehicle stop you… no breaks whatsoever, unless you’re a postman.
