Typically FHP patrols with VASCAR from an aircraFort Lots of stretches of flat highway where it is easy to pick up speed. All of a sudden, a welcoming committee of about 6 or 7 cars pulling people over. Quarter- and half-mile markers on road many places on I10 throughout Tallahassee and Leon County.
Tallahassee PD sits in the Godby Highschool exit waiting there with their unmarked chevy impala’s. They stick the nose of the car out to avoid the “Entrapment Laws””. There is a officer on the walkway above with some type of new laser gun b/c my brand new Radar/Laser Detector which costs $250 can’t detect it. Watch Out! “
The posted speed is 20, when it probably should be 30. There is no pedestrian traffic in the area and only one turn off into a parking lot. I am pretty sure they hide behind the hill of the bridge and clock you there. The entire FSU campus is posted at a low speed (mostly 20), but that stretch of road is marked with a truly unfair speed limit.
When heading west on Tennessee St. make sure you keep your eyes on the left of the road. Just past Woodward St. (Street that Bisects FSU Campus) there is a hidden driveway. It is not uncommon to see two leon county sherrifs or two tallahassee cops waiting. The speed limit is 35 mph on a 4 lane road “Insane””!”
