Lawton, Oklahoma Speed Traps
Heading west on I44 to exit onto Cache Road, Lawton’s finest will sit, behind a set a trees on right side of road running their Stalker Radar. Speed limit drops to 40mph and it’s easy to travel at 50mph.
Heading Eastbound passing Montego Bay, PSL drops down from 45-40mph. Squad cars usually sit in the parking lot, running their Decatur Gensis Radar.
Speed limit slows down to 45-50 at the far far edge of town. Not heavily populated, so seems the speed limit should be more. They work it heavy! Have got me twice.
Every few months or so the Lawton PD receives federal money to set up a speed trap at Rogers Ln. and Fort Sill Blvd. This only happens a handful of times per year, but the policeman on the Fort Sill Blvd. overpass radios to his buddies in place on Rogers Lane. It’s not unusual to see 8-12 patrol cars silmultaneously in action.
The whole Interstate 44 is a HUGE Speedtrap from the Texas border all the way to the Okalahoma Airport… I am in the Air Force, and was on the way to drop off a visiting mother-in-law from Tennessee at the Will Rodgers Airport. I was clocked by one of OHP "Finest" . He was not nice or friendly and didnt even cut me ANY break. Wrote me a $203 Ticket and that was that. We saw 8 Oklohoma Highway Robbers in a short 125 mile span, and I saw 7 on the way home. 1 about ran me off the rode , running in excess of 90 miles a hour , just to catch is buddies ( 2 other patrols) getting of the interstate to eat at the local resturant , what I had just been ticked for half a hour before, IS THIS RIGHT? JUSTICE? He can do it but not me. I have fought for this country , been deployed numerous times, and he has done what? Now it doesnt make it right for me to be speeding but, give me a break. I have seen better justice from the Tennessee Highway Patrol where I came from. I believe Oklohoma cant make any other revenue but from their "Payed to drive on" Interstate and the wonderful high tickets from the OHP…
Thanks for letting me say my peace.
