LOL. "There is no speed trap if you pay attention." Of course. If we weren't going over the speed limit, we wouldn't have gotten a speeding ticket. Kind of obvious, right? Whoops on us.

This is the link I had found that I thought corresponded with our situation: https://www.speedtrap.org/speedtrap/...mlk-boulevard/. It looks like 53 people voted that, yes, this is a speed trap. One person commented much like you, TRLhiker. It sounds like I misremembered the way the speed was parsed out, and given that I was in the middle of a medical emergency and I don't live there, that's understandable.

So I graciously retract my statement that it was a speed trap. It was just a day when police were parked four wide pulling people over left and right just before a holiday on a road that seems to be heavily traveled by people passing through and my husband was trying to get me to my dentist or to the ER, depending on how the situation played out. But not a speed trap.

Whoo! Update: Court date was last week. On Friday, we received the notification that the charge had been lowered to Improper Equipment and all fees were paid. No points, no insurance issues. Thanks for the help, most everyone on here! It was absolutely the right decision for us to use a lawyer!

I also have to agree that if you're paying attention to your driving there is no speed trap there. The limits are clearly marked. This is what I imagine a true speed trap to look like. This pic was from England, hence the odd looking speed limit sign.

Yes, clearly that is an obvious speed trap! Shady, shady speed trap.

I think we've moved on from that discussion (see three posts up where I say, "okay, not a speed trap"), but thanks for your input.
