What's the difference between a "speed-enforcement campaign" and a "speed trap?"
Well, maybe it's just the terminology, says Mike Tellef, spokesman for the Peoria Police Department. But speed traps are typically set up where the posted speed limit is artificially low, and where cops try to stay hidden, he adds.
Neither of these things define Peoria's latest anti-speeding effort on 91st Avenue between Thunderbird and Bell roads.
Tellef says the curvy road, which has posted speed limits ranging from 25 to 35 miles per hour, has seen tons of speeders lately, some flying by at 60 m.p.h.
Speed trap or not -- at least now you've been warned.
