Top Speed Traps In The USA – May 2007

May 2007

Memorial Day weekend is one of the busiest travel 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. Colorado Springs, Colorado
3. Houston, Texas
4. Orlando, Florida
5. Nashville, Tennessee
6. Ann Arbor, Michigan
7. Albuquerque, New Mexico
8. Washington, D.C.
9. Denver, Colorado
10. Virginia Beach, Virginia

This list was created from the NMA’s SpeedTrap Exchange (, a site devoted to identifying the location of speed traps. The cities were ranked by the number of speed traps posted on the website by the public.

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 traffic citations.

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