Top Speed Traps In The USA – June 2006

June 2006

The Fourth of July weekend is one of the most heavily traveled times of the year. As people prepare for their holiday trips, they should be on the lookout for speed traps. Nothing can ruin a vacation more quickly than an undeserved speeding ticket. As a public service, the National Motorists Association (NMA) has prepared a list of the top ten speed trap cities in the United States.

All motorists would be well-advised to keep these locations in mind while driving this holiday.

1. Detroit, Michigan suburbs
2. Washington D.C.
3. Orlando, Fla.
4. Colorado Springs, Colo.
5. Houston, Tex.
6. Virginia Beach, Va.
7. Austin, Tex.
8. Baton Rouge, La.
9. Nashville, Tenn.
10. Fresno, Calif.

This list was created from the NMA’s SpeedTrap Exchange (, a site devoted to identifying the location of speed traps.

Although these are the top ten speed trap cities in the nation, arbitrarily low speed limits combined with heavy enforcement means there are many other areas in which drivers should be alert to avoid a traffic citation.

Motorists who wish to enjoy their travelling time this weekend, should visit for a full list and specific locations of speed traps. Forewarned is forearmed.
