Phoenix for sure has to be #1, with dozens of speed cameras set up on the freeways and mobile speed camera vans set up on the side of the road. Better watch out there.

On the drive down to Phoenix from Las Vegas you've got to watch yourself in Wikieup and Wickenburg. Both towns are horrible speed traps.

the whole denver metro area is a major trap. they have those cops with lasers that hide and radio to the other cops that are also hiding to bust your a$$. i would also say eastern oregon/southern idaho has alot of patrol cars on the road too.

The part for Georgia is a joke. Putting Atlanta on there makes no sense, I lived in the area for 18 years and went into the city every week during that time. Not once did I ever see a cop car for anything other than a car accident. They VERY rarely pull anyone over. Peachtree City on the other hand, will use 3 or 4 cop cars to pull someone over (for as little as 1 to 2 mph over the speed limit). I would put it at the very top.

New Mexico's dishonorable, Las Cruces? I haven't seen more than 5 speed traps there. I wonder if it includes the area on I-10 going south into El Paso. That's different, there's speedtraps everywhere between Mesquite and Anthony.

Waldo and Lawtey in northern Florida are up there. I travel through there probably 20 times a year, and see cops looking for speeders or pulling someone over. It is that they'll grab you for 1 mile over the limit, which the departments say they don't stop anyone for less than 10 over. Of the hundreds of times that I've passed through there, I have never had a problem, but I go 5 under. They ain't gettin' me
