I-35 and Airport Intersection

Temple, TexasJun 05, 20120 Comments

I was southbound on I-35 exiting to Airport Rd. Busy looking for traffic as I left the freeway, I missed the signs that said 35mph (really, from 70 to 35 in 100 yards?!?). But that is only part of the trap. There is a “road” that comes off the westbound lane of Airport that goes to the frontage road. (URL deleted)

It is fully paved. Not sure if it has a street name but does have a STOP sign, a DO NOT ENTER sign and is painted with a large crosswalk line. It seems to be a road to allow you to visit a historical marker. The officer was parked IN THE MIDDLE of that road with no lights or flashers on and facing northbound. I believe he was illegally parked on a road when he issued my ticket for 47 as I was coming off of the highway.
As a matter of fact, after being issued the ticket, I was analyzing the situation and a van drove down that road. I questioned to myself what would have happened if the officer’s vehicle was still in the middle of the road.
