Hwy 95 @ Loop 230 intersection
On Hwy 95 just south of the Loop 230 intersection in Smithville, TX, the speed limit signs have been intentionally placed behind a clump of crepe myrtle trees.
There is almost always a cop hiding in the bushes just south of the intersection just waiting for a speeder to drive through. After I reported this to TXDOT, the trees on the south bound side of Hwy 95 were partially cut back exposing part of the speed limit sign. The sign on the north bound side is still completely covered. FYI, if passing through Smithville, TX be aware that there is a 5 MHP drop in the speed limit hidden behind the crepe myrtles and a cop waiting for someone to drive through, unaware of the hidden signs. Do not speed through Smithville. I have seen many, many drivers ticketed at this intersection.
