Purcell, Oklahoma Speed Traps
OHP sits under the bridge up against the pillar at exit 91. Friday through Sunday is their favorite time to run radar at this spot.
Purcell police parked on opposite side of highway. Although traffic was moderate and I was being passed by other vehicles I was pulled over after being "clocked" by radar. When I asked the officer about the other vehicles that were passing me, he replied "We can’t catch them all" The Purcell PD takes no responsibility to determine the correct vehicle that is commiting the violation, just the closest one. There is no way the officer could have positively identified my vehicle due to the traffic and the distance between his cruiser and my vehicle.
Purcell Police have begun setting up radar traps on I-35, most probably to enhance City revenue, as the Interstate does not enter the inhabited portion of Purcell, and there is no conceivable safety threat to the citizens.
Watch out in this town. Better hope your tag light works!
