Speed traps...

I know that when they race on the salt flats they set up a speed trap where they capture your velocity. I also know that when someone announces the presence of a police radar it usually slows down the traffic. This may be a better way to slow down tourists than handing out speeding tickets as it would reduce the first time travellers speed which may be important when there won’t be a second time to learn from the first? It doesn’t make sense to criticize someone who suggests slowing down and then advocate slowing down either.
I know that if someone warns me that speed limits are strictly enforced I am more likely to slow down than if they say “watch your speed, it’s dangerous”. The lineup for gringo tourists who want to interact with a Mexican cop on the side of the road between two towns will be pretty short.
