Summer travelers beware, you may end up spending part of your vacation money paying the fine for a speeding ticket.

Summer is a great time to take to the road for vacation. However, the extra miles also increase the risk of getting a speeding ticket, especially when you're traveling down unfamiliar roads and highways.

Of course, there's also the risk you're being targeted by deceptive or even illegal practices by law enforcement in some places as found in the news report.

If you're looking for a great example of changing speed limits, a drive between Grand Junction and Montrose is all you need to see how easy it is to get a speeding ticket if you're not paying attention to speed limit signs.

One of the many changes is near Olathe, where the speed limit on Highway 50 drops to 45 mph for a short distance.

Your best defense is to pay close attention to speed limit signs no matter where you travel.
