FYI- using radar or pacing is not a speedtrap. The legal definition of a speed trap is when a vehicle is timed for a set distance.
The majority of reasons certain areas have more traffic patrol is due to complaints from citizens and if the area has alot of accidents.
A sad thought about drivers is that most are ignorant (as most have you have probably seen). I normally work an area of Hwy 29 where we have alot of accidents. I usally will work the area with radar. It never fails, I will get mulitple vehicles at least 15 mph over the 60 mph speed limit. Most of them will then say to me, "I see you here everyday." And yet, they still do it. Bascically, the drivers do not pay one bit of attention. It is also there lack of attention when the don't see motorcyclists.
