Barton Boulevard near Rockledge Drive
When you crest a mini-hill on Barton heading west (away from the Indian River Lagoon) off Rockledge Drive, there is a reduced 15 mph speed school zone in the morning and afternoon. Sadly this sign is often blocked by parked trucks and bushes. When you crest the hill at the sign the officers are ticketing directly at said sign (giving no opportunity to slow down even if you do see the poorly placed sign). In my case a child came over the peak of the hill on a skateboard followed by an SUV so I pulled over in my heavely laden 4 cylinder truck (just 50 feeet or so from the crest of the hill)to a stop…somehow, miracuously, I was ‘clocked’ doing 32 at the crest of the hill just a few feet after starting up again…I certainly accept and believe in low speed zones at schools but something strange is going on at this “speed trap””-Be Aware!
