Dodging Pasadena speed traps is not nearly as easy as it used to be. Police officers are getting savvier on hiding places and are poaching in areas where most cars are driving 10 mph over the speed limit. Although the bombardment of badly concealed law enforcement is hard to live with, Pasadena speed traps might be saving lives.
Statistics from the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) showed that in 2006, 11 people were killed and 1,047 were injured in Pasadena car accidents. When areas become prone to catastrophic injury accidents, police enforcement tend to set up speed traps to help regulate the situation. Whether monetary gain or public safety is the top priority is debatable, but either way it would be wise to exercise caution in the following areas.
