Dewar, Oklahoma Speed Traps
Police park off the side of the road hidden, right in the middle of the speed going from 35-45 and vice versa the other direction. No question if you are going even one over they will issue you a ticket. No they do not give any warnings. The town has tons of police vehicles and way too many officers for a town that does not even have 900 people. This is the only revenue the town has and should be reported to the Commissioner of Public Safety under the state of Oklahoma 47 Okla. stat § 2-117. This is a form of Policing for Profit which is not right and outright theft for the amount they charge.
Local PD patrol this area with a vengeance. Avoid this town! I almost moved there, glad I didn’t. It would have been too expensive in the long run. Locals have put up speed trap warning signs at each end of the town. BEWARE!
The police hide out of site waiting for someone to come along speeding. Recently my wife was given a citation for 7 miles over the speed limit. It cost her $125.
Local police officers park, often in a somewhat concealed position, up to six blocks either direction from the intersection of Highway US 266 and Broadway Street in Dewar, Oklahoma. There is documentation for more than seventy people per week arrested in a community of nine hundred people.
Maybe not so much a trap, but seem to focus on out of towners.
