HWY 36 TO LOOP THRU TOWN (S BOUND)
Temple has been under construction for years and each time thru it is different.
The intersection of Airport to Loop thru town is a mega trap. You go onto the service road for about 1/2 mile with a merge from the left and one from the right.The left is off a 60 MPH and they don’t slow, the left is down a little farther and is slow. A police on motorcycle sets under a bridge and tickets mostly out of towners trying to get into the loop access. Service is 45 MPH and loop is 60 MPH. Do not attempt to speed up and merge with Loop, they will get you ever time.
If they do get you the court system is even more of a pain.. The fine is steep and Temple get 27% of the budget from fines ($1,400,000 / 2015) in the budget per Director OF FINANCE (public record).
Total fines and fees for 2015 (budget) $2,061,362. NON-Residents 53.6% of fines. (again-public record). A friend told me cops are on a quota/ incentive program (not confirmed). There are other routes to take, avoid at any cost TEMPLE,TX.
