According to a recent report published in AOL Autos but created by Trapster and CNBC.com, revealed that Austin TX is in the top 10 cities with the most speed traps.
The data, compiled by the Trapster community of 15 million drivers, analyzed the number of reports users submitted within a 30-day period. The company discovered that these top 10 cities, including Austin, had over 3,000 to 4,000 reports submitted in that time period.
In Austin, the majority of the speed traps reported were in areas where the “speed limit drops suddenly and unexpectedly.” These areas then become an easy target for law enforcement and anyone unaware can become a traffic violator.
It is estimated that over 100,000 traffic tickets are given each day to motorists across the nation; and it just so happens that Austin is one of the top 10 ticket-giving cities. Our advice: learn the speed limits for the roads you take on your daily commute. This way you can know what the speed limit is at all times and avoid a traffic violation due to a speed trap.
Stay ticket-free Austin!
