If there’s one thing that seems to bind together all Florida men, it’s their ingenuity. And today’s Florida man tale is no different. Because when Florida man takes on Florida speed traps, apparently, he wins.
Last week, “in response to citizen requests, our deputies conducted a speed enforcement operation in Golden Gate Estates,” the Collier County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.
But after a steady stream of traffic, they were left confused. They’d only pulled over one driver for speeding.
When the deputies left the area, the community apparently not being the speed demons they’d been painted as, everything made sense.

Located about a quarter mile from the speed trap, sat a piece of plywood propped up against a 45 mph speed limit sign. “POLICE AHEAD” the sign warned in bright red paint.
What’s left for the Florida deputies to say but “Well played, Anonymous Sign Artist. Well played.” And that’s exactly what they did.
