Top 20 states for speed traps
The National Motorists Association (NMA) estimates that annual speeding ticket revenue nationwide is between $5 to 7 billion, in part, due to motorists receiving tickets in areas known for speed traps.
Just in time for the holiday traveling season, NMA has released its report warning of 20 states notorious for speed traps.
The top 20 list was compiled by data from NMA’s National Speed Trap Exchange website, according to an NMA statement. The data identifies states with “arbitrarily low speed limits with heavy traffic enforcement designed to generate ticket revenue," according to the advocacy organization for motorists’ rights. The exchange compiled reported speed trap locations, some identified by Speed Trap Exchange website users, between Nov. 1, 2010 and Oct. 31, 2015, to determine state rankings.
