Since the recession hit, Cypress speed traps are as hard to find as a casino on the strip. It seems as if Cypress police officers are hidden behind every bush on every corner, but the question that plagues motorists is why. Many believe, with good reason, that these are simply ways to increase revenue; pulling over every motorist going slightly over the speed limit amounts to a substantial amount of cash migrating from locals pockets into the state’s. If you were to ask a local officer, he would probably tell you that it is to protect motorists from those who willfully disregard the safety of others.
According to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) in 2006, 4 people were killed and 172 were injured as a result of Cypress car accidents. Law enforcement is claiming that speed traps are set up in areas that are prone to injury accidents and that their presence has created a warning to those who could end up being a factor in future accidents. No matter what the reason, it would be wise to avoid the following areas if you drive over the posted speed limit.
