WAUNAKEE, Wis., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Livonia, Mich., ranked No. 1 and Windsor, Ontario, came in second in the National Motorists Association's list of speed traps.

The Waunakee, Wis., group, established in 1982 to fight the 55-mph speed limit, said Livonia has 27.9 speed traps per 100,000 residents, while Windsor has 17.6.

Orlando, Fla., came in third with 17.2 speed traps per 100,000, followed by Las Vegas with 11.1, Denver with 10.9, Reno, Nev., with 10.4, Tampa, Fla., with 8.9 and Colorado Springs, Colo., with 7.2. Rounding out the Top 10 were Austin, Texas, and Sarasota, Fla., with 6.1 each.

The association sent out its list in advance of the travel-heavy Labor Day holiday to caution drivers to "safely anticipate, rather than suddenly react to, ticketing operations."
