If you feel the need for speed, you’ll want to take a look at the National Motorist Association’s (NMA) latest findings before hitting the gas. It lists the top 25 North American cities with the most speed traps.

The NMA came up with the list by calculating the number of speed traps per 100,000 residents in the municipality. On the top of the list is Livonia, Michigan with 27.9 speed traps per 100,000 residents. Windsor, Ontario, Canada comes in second with 17.6 traps per 100,000
