Hwy 19 in Alex Oklahoma
I, along with numerous other acquaintances in the oil field have been pulled over and ticketed in Alex Oklahoma. This is most definitely a speed trap. I was clocked at 57mph in a 45 mph however there are extenuating circumstances . First, the hills in Alex are very steep, the signs are small, and the roads are narrow. After receiving a ticket, I only drive 45 miles an hour for the entire 8 mile stretch (even in the 55 and 50). Another thing to consider is that Alex only has traffic court once per month, which means if you are ticketed a week before the next scheduled date for the judge to be in town (like myself), you’ll only have that time to pay your ticket. I attempted to fight my ticket and the judge did not even allow me to give a defense, anytime my answers were more illustrative than yes or no, he interrupted me. The officer who pulled me over even misinformed me about the ticket process. The only bright side is that the officer gives a nice envelope for you to send the money in, which I used to mail a letter of polite complaint.
