IKR?
around here it's always in the most annoying places too.

there used to be a speed trap where the speed limit is 30 but up this hill it goes down to 20 and they'd get you going 30 or more at the top of the hill

they sit hiding with their lights off (technically entrapment btw which is why I drive with my brights on in areas where I know they like to hide.)
they sit in transition zones.
hell we have an area that used to be 40 for a stretch between two lights but it's now 35, and every time I go to and from work they've got somebody pulled over for a speeding ticket.
they really should just make the whole stretch 40 all the way to the next light, it's nearly 2 KM.

theyve been getting more smarter...some cop cars actually stakeout one stretch of roadway by parking normally like any other vehicle..and most of drivers dont notice, until its too late! and even though they dont operate during holidays and weekends, i still drive at safe speed because you never know...im always on alert.

so they expanded the speed reductions, we've been getting 5mph reductions in speed limits all over the city over the past few months... it kinda sucks because some of these roads are driven as alternatives to the highway and I guess the more upper class neighborhoods are pushing it to reduce traffic on them?

Usually its residents that push for these cuts, or the locality realizes they can increase revenue through tickets by reducing speed limits.

it seems to be a mixture of both in this case unfortunately
