Speed Traps

Winter 1999 CSANews Issue 34  |  Posted date : Mar 04, 2007.Back to list

A recent article in the National Post has warned motorists to avoid the north Florida towns of Lawtey and Waldo. According to the Post, "Waldo...gathered 30% of its 1998 revenue from speeding tickets..." and "Lawtey brought in $500,000 on traffic citations, an amount that accounted for fully 70% of its municipal revenue."

If you must drive through these areas, watch traffic signs very closely (driving speeds change abruptly) and use your cruise control.
