WAUNAKEE, Wis. - For years, drivers from every U.S. state and Canadian province have reported speed trap locations to the National Motorists Association's National Speed Trap Exchange. As families squeeze in vacation time together this Labor Day weekend, before the school year begins in full swing, the roadways will be a very busy place for travelers.

    With the combination of heavy holiday traffic, federally-funded ticketing campaigns, and financially-strapped local and state governments, motorists have good reason to feel like they have dollar signs painted on their vehicles.

    To help families avoid a depressing and expensive holiday traffic ticket experience, the NMA has identified two cities in each state and province using data directly from the National Speed Trap Exchange.The first city listed has the most user-reported speed traps regardless of population size, while the second has the most speed traps for cities with populations of 100,000 or less.


    To view information on over 60,000 specific speed trap reports by city, state or province, you can visit the Exchange at www.speedtrap.org.
