Third avenue down the steep hill past "A" street

At the bottom of the hill where there is a sharp left turn a policeman hunkers down with his speed gun behind a low wall. If you go over the 25 mph limit, he jumps up and flags you down. The hill is so steep you have to constantly brake to keep within the 25 mph limit.

I live at the top of this hill and drive down it at least once a day. I've never seen a cop at the bottom waiting to ticket someone. Maybe there was a cop there a few times, but it seems justified because there's a lot of old people live in the condominiums on the hill. It's true you should brake to make the sharp turn at the bottom of the hill because going faster than 20 mph is certainly dangerous. Many roads are not designed for the efficient flow of traffic. Residential districts on steep hills going into the commercial district can't be like a main thoroughfare. I think a speed trap is different than enforcing a safe speed.
