US Hwy 79 & US Hwy 77

Rockdale, TexasNov 05, 20091 Comments

Traveling north on US77 and taking the interchange to US79 will result in a changing from 70 mph to 50 mph with no signage to indicate the change. Local yokel will be posted just east of the interchange on US79 due to knowledge of this information disconnect.

In the last 16 years, I've received only two (2) citations, 4 years apart -- both in Rockdale, and both issued for less than 6 mph over the (nearly invisibly) posted limit. It appears these types of speed-traps are one of the best sources of revenue for many of these microscopic little dirt-water 'Dales. The only thing we can do (assuming we still have a few dollars after paying out their ridiculous fines and court costs!) is to vote with those few, leftover hard-earned dollars. Yes folks .... spend them somewhere else! If these dusty little gas-stops can't find anything less unethical to do to generate income for themselves than to use Barney Fife to rob motorists while staying 'just this side of the law', then perhaps these "quaint" little holes-in-the-wall should just go belly-up and be steam-rolled under just another black-top super highway.
