Why didn’t the speed trap work? Oh, that’s why

Call it a reverse speed trap.

Someone tried to thwart Florida deputies’ efforts to catch speeding drivers in southwest Florida — and it worked.

On Facebook, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said its deputies had set up a “speed enforcement operation’’ in Golden Gate Estates in Naples after receiving requests by area residents.

When the deputies realized no one was speeding, they were puzzled.
