Suppose you've been driving on Michigan roads for any amount of time. In that case, you're bound to travel over the speed limit, knowingly or unknowingly. Especially if you're in an area where you're not familiar with speed limits increasing or decreasing. And certain Michigan towns get us caught up more than others when it comes to speeding.


Speed Traps To Be Aware Of On Michigan Roads

While speed limits are obvious for drivers on Michigan highways, it's the backroads in some Michigan towns where the lines can cause some confusion. And it can be especially tricky for visitors who only pass through these towns. The speed limit could be 55 mph one minute, then drastically drop to 35 mph. Visitors and residents of Michigan towns need to be aware of the areas where law enforcement officers keep a close eye on speeding.
