I-10 Ditches of Leon County – WORST FHP TRAP IN FLORIDA!!
The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) in their never ending quest for additional State budget funding tries to impress nearby Tallahassee State Legislators in the Leon County area by running the largest and most illegal speedtrap in Florida.
Numerous reports of as many as 20 – 30 FHP marked cars and SUVs hiding in ditches below I-10 grade lined up in rows like jackals waiting for motorists to exceed the posted 70 MPH limit and pouncing speeding themselves up and out of ditches startling and scaring other motorists as they wildly chase the lawbreakers.
Never have I seen a larger waste of law enforcement resources and manpower in this scam every time I have to pass through Leon County on I-10.
And the FHP claims to be short on manpower? There are at least 25 troopers assigned to this operation almost daily.
This scam is even worse than the Miami I-95 overpass speedtraps the FHP runs.
