Pasadena speed traps never really bothered me, until I witnessed the effects of speeding motorists. Driving by what would have been a safe vehicle, had the driver been going the posted speed limit, and seeing a gruesome distorted hunk of metal, I have come to understand them a bit better. Although the city is making a nice chunk of change from this popular tactic, Pasadena speed traps are put in place to protect people in areas that are prone to catastrophic injury accidents. Getting a ticket is never fun, but I’d take a ticket over a life-changing injury any day.
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 approaching the following areas be safe, and remember that you are not the only person who is in danger when you speed.
