Steering Clear of Fountain Valley, California Speed Traps

By

Fountain Valley speed traps have become as common and annoying as the amount of Starbucks I see on my way to work. I mean really, who needs to stop every two blocks to get another cup of coffee? I’ve had enough of the city climbing into my pocket to pull out cash that I don’t have because I am trying to get to work on time and refill that pocket. If you were to ask Cypress law enforcement why they are cracking down so hard, they will probably tell you it is to keep the streets safe from dangerous motorists.

Truth be told, they might have somewhat of a point. In 2006, statistics compiled by the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) showed that four people died and 476 people were injured in Fountain Valley car accidents. Supposedly, setting up speed traps discourages drivers from exceeding the speed limit in areas that are prone to catastrophic injury. Either way, I think there are a few too many bushes with radar guns sticking out of them, and when you come to the following bushes it would be wise to slow your roll.
