Default America's worst speed traps

Here is a story off of CNBC about the top 10 worst cities in the US for speed traps.

Note how Texas is home to three of those cities with Houston (Fritter Territory) making the top of the list.

http://www.cnbc.com/id/41621788/

So like we have known all along, the way speed limits have been set in many areas has very little to do with safety........it's more about the revenue.

I see that Las Vegas is in the top ten also and when I was there last year I didn't see any and I was driving all over that place. Hmmm I guess that's a good thing those.

Thumbs up Updated Link to America's Worst Speed Traps

The link at the top has been moved to http://www.cnbc.com/id/41621788/


But I would like to add Savannah,GA to the list - A few years ago I was there and just made a right turn and got a speeding ticket (15mph) I was doing 16mph

If you go to Savannah go under the speed limit - They are very picky, Not like Atlanta or Augusta,GA

Drive safe fellow Escort users

Be very careful in the low country of SC - Like I found going into Blackville,SC the speed limit is 55mph, but when you get to the bend right @ Blackville the speed changes to 35mph and there is a cop hidden to give you that $850 ticket Also that 35mph sign you have to almost stop to see it.

Be careful when coming to Augusta from Atlanta in Talliaferro County, they (County Sheriff using I/O mostly) work I-20 hard issuing tickets, giving no breaks. I know.

In the Savannah area I think the worst ones are the Port Wentworth and Garden City cops....Port Wentworth has jurisdiction of small slice of I-95 and boy do they generate some revenue from it. So be careful all you travelers passing thru from north to south or vice versa!!!

Interesting... 4.5 to 6 billion dollar industry! Wonder how often this data is updated? It would be nice to have an idea doing the amount of travel some people do.

Of course FL is on any list out there. I knew Jacksonville was bad, didn't know it was number 5. Although for the last month or so I have not seeing any speed trap here. Kind of odd that the cops are hiding, it might be the unusual cold weather
