Tom Tom is a company known for building aftermarket GPS devices. But now, with the new Tom Tom speed camera app, users in Europe can beat the speed traps and save some money.
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
The NMA uses the National Speed Trap Exchange to help drivers identify where the speed limit is set arbitrarily low for having a faster and heavier traffic flow. The National Speed Trap Exchange claims to help educate drivers so that they can safely anticipate a speed trap instead of dangerously reacting to one.
Does your city make the top 25? Find out after the jump.
If you’ve got a lead foot, this post is specifically for you. The weather is getting better and we know that you just can wait to cruise the open roads. But be warned: you should brush up on what cities are the worst for speed traps.
Speeding tickets are a big business and with the recession, some cities are putting up more speed traps in an effort to bring in a little more cash. And the business is booming – the National Motorists Association estimates that speeding tickets bring in $4.5 to $6 billion in America. Not too shabby.
And even if you aren’t in a hurry, you should always watch your speedometer, as some cities will fine you for going just one mile over the speed limit, while others set the limits artificially low.
After the jump, you’ll find a list of the top cities with the number of speed traps they boast.
