In response to 144148: Covid-19 speed trap?, posted by Michael D on Thursday, 4 June 2020, at 8:20 a.m.
I found this paragraph from an online site, I think it's good differentiation between blatant disregard for posted speeds and an actual speed trap. YMMV, but it would be interesting to see arguments against this:
Understanding What A Speed Trap Is
No, an actual speed trap is when something genuinely illegal is happening. For example, if a stretch of road has a poorly posted speed limit that's different from other parts of that road, then that is a speed trap. It is the government's responsibility to clearly mark changes in the speed limit so drivers can respond accordingly. It is also the government's responsibility to make sure those changes in speed limit are backed up by research from the highway department stating the change is necessary, which ensures no one is randomly creating places to trap motorists as they speed.
