Tallahassee, Florida Speed Traps
will sit in any of the parking lots from the miracle 5 movie theater to betton place (both side of the road). This is one of the higest hit roads as it is a 3 lane with both ways in a down hill position toward betton rd. Police know that many people will gain speed simply on the downward momentum and it is a very central location that has high traffic flow.
Local law enforcement, usually Tallahassee Police, sit in the unfinished street entry points near the Governor’s Crossing shopping center and zap speeders coming down both hills as you approach the Blairstone/Park intersection.
Police love to hide all along northbound Ocala street between Tennessee and Tharpe, including school and apartment entrances and cross streets (like Continental). They like to use unmarked cars, including Impalas, as well as motorcycles. The posted speed on Ocala street is 35, although most traffic moves between 40 and 45. Ocala street also has many hills and downward slants, making it easy to accelerate unintentionally. I mostly see police on Ocala streetduring the middle of the day, between 10 am and 2 pm, although I have seen them later as well. I have never observed police watching southbound Ocala street.
Police hang out right around the bars on Tennessee street between Copeland and Dewey, in the parking lot of the Target copy to one side of the street and the Wendy’s to the other side of the street there is a hill on either side approaching these streets.
Gaines street in Tallahassee is a classic speed trap. The road is narrow so the speed limit is set at 35 mph. I see radar being shot there about once a week or more.
