6/29/2006Top Ten US Speed Trap Cities
The National Motorists Association released a list of the top-ten speed trap cities in the country.
The National Motorists Association issued a warning yesterday to holiday weekend travelers urging them to avoid or use caution when driving through the ten cities most notorious for speed traps. "Nothing can ruin a vacation more quickly than an undeserved speeding ticket," explained Eric Skrum, the group's communications director.
The top-ten list of speed trap cities was created with data from the SpeedTrap Exchange, a site that identifies locations that combine arbitrarily low speed limits with heavy traffic enforcement designed to raise revenue. The top-ten cities are as follows:
- Detroit, Michigan suburbs
- Washington, D.C.
- Orlando, Florida
- Colorado Springs, Colorado
- Houston, Texas
- Virginia Beach, Virginia
- Austin, Texas
- Baton Rouge, Louisiana
- Nashville, Tennessee
- Fresno, California
