School zones are notorious speed traps. One minute you are driving along at a proper speed, and then BAM! You see a yellow light flashing and warning you to lower you speed to a snail's crawl. While we can all understand the importance of a school zone, it doesn't make it any easier to drive through them.
You know you were going over the speed limit, but that doesn't stop you from finding an excuse for your speeding. When an officer pulls you over, it can be a frightening experience. All you need to do is stay calm and be honest. Try not to flood the officer with excuse after excuse.

Florida has become the go-to state for "speed traps". In case you didn't know, speed traps are done in an area of the road where police can remain hidden in order to detect vehicles going over the speed limit. The police typically use radar for detection.
