OK, I get that Niagara Falls is one of the world's most awe-inspiring bits of natural beauty, but is there really such a rush to see something that's never going to move that it justifies the state's worst speed trap?
Worst speed-trap city: Brea
Most notorious speed trap: El Dorado Freeway
Total speed traps per 100,000 residents: 17
Brea has nothing to do with the La Brea Tar Pits, but you'll still get, um, stuck, with a ticket. Sorry.
36. Washington, DC
Worst speed-trap city: N/A
Most notorious speed trap: 2200 Block of K St NW
Total speed traps per 100,000 residents: 15.2
15.2 speed traps per 100,000 people doesn't seem all that bad at first blush. You have to think about population density, though. There's literally no countryside to spread that number out. You're basically talking about a speed trap for every few city blocks in some areas.
