Paige Road near State Highway 121
After turning into The Colony from Hwy 121, the road narrows to one lane in each direction for construction. The speed limit is dropped down to 25 MPH for the entire ride north. My car can do 25 without touching the gas. If there are workers anywhere on the stretch, you can get tagged for ‘workers present’ which means you can’t take defensive driving nor can you go for a deferal – it is either pay or try your luck with the judge. I was stuck behind a person who couldn’t read the street signs and stopped at every intersection (while doing 15 – 20 between each street). When they finally started a turn, I gassed it to get away from them and ran into Mr. Copper. The lights went on, and I was tagged with 36 in a 25. No real discussion from the officer, he just took my license and went back to write a ticket. Even though the workers were over 1/2 mile away, he gave me a ticket (with no fee schedule) stating workers were present and said that I could go for deferrment when I called the city. When I called the city, they said, no way, pay up or else. I would avoid that area at all costs (or pay the $258 fee).
