Speed trap town disbands police force
WALDO, FLORIDA- A town that didn't hide the fact its police department wrote tickets to pay the bills is disbanding the force. The town council of Waldo, Florida in Alachua County did away with the force weeks after the police chief and interim chief resigned due to state investigations into ticket quotas and other problems.
Now, AAA is considering if it will remove signs and billboards that warned drivers about the speed trap town. The county sheriff's office is now patrolling the town but some living there worry speeding will get worse.
