Airline Highway (US-61)

This radar trap is directly across from a Shell station that would be on your left side if you were traveling east-bound on US-61. There are two policemen wearing neon-colored "construction vests", which is why I didn’t notice they were cops at first. They are standing behind a large trash can as they point the laser gun at oncoming cars, so they are for the most part hidden. They park their cop cars about 60 feet back in a parking lot, one with it’s hood up, as if to appear that it’s broken down and other cops are perhaps helping him out. Speed limit was also recently lowered to 45 from 55 mph. I was given a ticket for going 60 in a 45. All the other times I’d been there it was 55 mph, so go figure…

Enforcement is EXTREMELY viscious; they are literally pulling them over and writing them tickets as fast as they can. Took them less than five minutes to issue me my ticket. As I was leaving I watched them pull over two more people – at the same time!! *Side note: I had my GPS with me, and it keeps a log of the track you make. GPS track log says I was only going 51. Wonder if I could use this in court to get a reduction on my ticket?
