Cypress speed traps used to be one of my pet-peeves, however, these days I’m starting to feel a little more sympathy. Personally, I like to go fast; there is nothing much better than flying down an open road without a care in the world. Unfortunately, speeding is one of the main causes of car accidents and many people have lost their lives to the sound of that tune. Although it is easy to blame the city for trying to increase revenue from tickets, at least part of the blame lies in the mirror.
According to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) in 2006, 4 people died and 172 were injured in Cypress car accidents. Police officers have reacted to these gruesome statistics by setting up speed traps that are prone to catastrophic injury accidents. When approaching the following areas, take into consideration that there’s a chance that you are driving over someone’s grave.
