Speed traps abound here in South Florida, and the Palm Beach Post is asking readers to write in with the location of speed traps around the region. The Post’s Watchdog team is planning to examine the topic for a future story about Palm Beach County speed traps and how much the county makes from these areas.
They’ll also be pondering the question on many Florida drivers’ minds: do speed traps protect public safety or are they a sneaky way of generating revenue?
