I-35NB past Valley Ridge, before the Lake Lewisville Bridge

Lewisville, TexasJun 24, 20190 Comments

Traveling SB on the express lanes across the Lake Lewisville bridge, I noticed four police cars with “customers” on both the shoulder and in the median breakdown lane of NB I-35. Right as I got to the SB end of the bridge, I saw why. Lewisville PD had deployed a police-marked utility truck (normally used for breakdowns on I35), with an officer sitting on the bed, using LIDAR* to tag drivers coming over the Valley Ridge overpass. There were two more cop cars staged ahead of the truck, out of sight of NB traffic but quite visible to SB express traffic. That made a total of six “bird dogs” to one “hunter”… and the drivers are the ducks. If they’ve done this once, they’ll do it again, and reap tickets wholesale, so keep your speed at or below the 70mph limit.

* My detector caught enough scatter from the gun to alert on LIDAR/laser as I got close to the truck. Radar would also travel further, and alert those with detectors, so this was a perfect Line of Sight trap setup.
