US 175

Eustace, TexasJan 27, 20141 Comments

Recently was given a ticket for speeding because I did not wait until I passed the speed limit sign to accelerate to the increased speed. I could not have been 40 feet from the sign. If I lived in this town, I would move simply because I would be embarrassed for anyone to know I lived in a place where this type of attitude exists. I had just commented to my passenger that I could count on one hand how many times I had not seen a police officer running radar in the 25+ years I have driven this highway through this town. I have several friends that are officers and NONE of them said they would have even considered stopping someone for this much less given them a ticket. I guess Barney Fife is alive and well in Eustace.

I just received the engineering report & Survey for this and it seems the "justified" speed for this stretch of road is 75 MPH not 50 or 55. Something in the City ordinance says 65MPH~ but even so.. Nothing on this survey even remotely indicates a speed of 50 or 55 MPH .... I suggest fighting your speeding tickets if you get pulled over on this stretch of highway.
