State Highway 287 near Within City Limits

Chillicothe, TexasFeb 12, 20070 Comments

Chillicothe Officer (often out of uniform) stands at different locations on side of SH287 with tripod and snaps photos of drivers exceeding the speed limit. Actual criminal (not civil) ticket is sent to owner of vehicle, regardless who was actually operating the vehicle. Owner of vehicle then has to appear to prove his innocence, or tell who was operating vehicle. Even after criminal ticket is issued, city has ability to also file civil fines against owner of vehicle.
Chillicothe signed 5 year contract with photo enforcement company Nestor where they are given a portion of proceeds from each ticket issued in return for free equipment.
Contact your state legislature to support H.B. No. 985, banning such activity.
