Up-to date and accurate alerts Location of every speed trap in these US

Up-to date and accurate 24 hour alerts via your cell phone etc. to speed traps in every US city.



This site is liked by local law enforcement as it is a deterrent for speeders and its like by speeders as they will considerably cut their chances of getting a ticket!

Win win in my book.

Nice, but they missed Greensville Co,Emporia, Virginia. I95 and 58 East and West is covered by Va State Police, City Police, and the Greensville Co. Sheriffs Office. At times, it's not uncommon to have 4-6 units from all Jurisdictions working on radar enforcement, with in a 4 mile strip.

You would think there were are major speed related accidents in this area, but there are not. This is revenue related pure and simple.

No lie. I still remember when they road-tested this truck for some mag and it topped out at 82. After buying one, I thought of laminating that piece in case I was ever pulled over. Turns out I couldn't really take the top racket much after 75 anyway.

Good catch and you are definitely correct regarding the revenue aspect. On a lighter note, these sites rely on individuals in different areas working together to ID the traps. Maybe it is a good idea if you joined the site and identified those areas to other members!?



Here is another site. Between these 2 I think we have all the states covered!

I think that it is obvious that Defenders are not a performance orientated vehicle but one can still get a ticket for going above the posted limit, besides I highly doubt that a Defender or especially 2.5 NA is the only vehicle that the majority of this forum members own!
