Public opinion on Fountain Valley speed traps isn’t particularly in favor; in fact, they are about as favorable as re-electing Richard Nixon. No one likes to be pulled over while they are speeding — if they didn’t have a good reason for it, they wouldn’t have been exceeding the speed limit, but after analyzing the factors that put a speed trap in place, I have become somewhat more appreciative.
In 2006, statistics compiled by the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) showed that 4 people died and 476 people were injured in Fountain Valley car accidents.
