North bound on Hwy. 6 coming into Riesel

Riesel, TexasAug 04, 20150 Comments

Speed limit drops from 70 to 55 to 45 in a short distance. Had my cruise set on 63 when I saw the signs. Put my thumb on the coast button and was slowing down when the red lights came on. At this point I was going 57 or 59 miles an hour and still slowing down. The cop said I was doing 71 in a 55. My truck is a 1991 F150. It’s top end is 85 miles an hour. The truck rattles and makes a lot of noise. I have never driven this vehicle over 70. I tried explaining this to the cop and got nowhere. My ticket will be $217.00. Yes, Riesel is a big speed trap.
