When it comes to catching speeders, the arterial highway, between Brackley Point Road and St. Peters Road, was the No. 1 spot for Charlottetown police in March.

Twenty-three speeding tickets were written last month on the bypass, close to the area of Oak Drive by the underpass.

Coming in second on the list was University Avenue by Enman Crescent (turn-off to Charlottetown Rural High School) where 21 speeding tickets were issued.

Number three was just up the road on University Avenue by McKinnon Road where another 15 tickets were written.

Number four on the top five speed traps in the city was also on University Avenue, this time at Belvedere Avenue where nine speeding tickets were issued.

Rounding out the top five was the Lower Malpeque Road at Westway Drive, adjacent to the Winsloe West Royalty Soccer Complex, where eight speeding tickets were written.

Six tickets were also issued on Lower Malpeque Road where it intersects Highfield Avenue.
