As if driving in New Jersey isn't bad enough with all the traffic that takes you so much longer to get where you're going, we also have to worry about speed traps.

What's mainly a money grab for the town can become a real hassle if you get caught in one.

I was once caught in Manalapan driving on Ryan Road where it went from 40 miles per hour down to 25, heading toward Route 9.

Not only did I have to pay a very expensive ticket, but I also received 4 points on my license — which drove my insurance cost up.

I understand we're always supposed to be obeying speed limits, but I feel some roads in New Jersey randomly change their speeds just to give you a ticket. You know who you are.

Hopefully with the list of New Jersey speed traps complied by both my listeners and social media following, we'll know where you are.

Pete in New Brunswick:

New Brunswick into north on route 1 south, crossing under 130, speed suddenly drops, by the time you realize you're over speed limit and cop waits under bridge for you
