GOLDEN GATE ESTATES, Fla. (WSVN) — Florida deputies who had settled in to watch out for speeding drivers were confused as to why they weren’t catching anyone. It wasn’t until later that they found out why.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office posted a photo on Facebook showing a sign that warned “POLICE AHEAD.”

Deputies said they discovered the sign after a “significant amount of time” at the speed trap and they had only found one person who was speeding, leaving them puzzled.

It wasn’t until after they left the area that they found the sign warning drivers of the upcoming speed trap.

“Well played, Anonymous Sign Artist. Well played,” deputies wrote.
