Right at the city limits on Highway 287

Estelline, TexasJan 21, 20200 Comments

Wow – they’re still catching people here! I got my very first speeding ticket in Estelline in 1986 – different speeds then due to highway speeds (speed limit on 287 was 55 – in Estelline it was 35, then crept up to 50 [not 55] at the edge of town and that’s where they got us) but still a moneymaker for the town. At least we didn’t have to make as big a drop in speed as now (75 mph to 50 now).
I wonder if anyone has ever successfully contested a ticket in Estelline. When I got ticketed I wanted to make a big stink and contest it – you can have a jury in TX for traffic offenses – but I realized that the Estelline jurors wouldn’t view my case very favorably. Pay close attention when driving through here!
