West bound FM 544 in front of Walmart

This isn’t a speed trap; however, it’s another way for this “cash strapped city” to make some additional funds. The location is westbound FM 544, in front of the Wal Mart grocery store. Eastbound traffic on 544 is heavy during the evening hours, thus they have a sign (approximately 150 yds. to the west of Murphy Rd and 544) that says “No left turn from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. In essence, all cops in this town apparently figure that all motorists should be aware of the time! I’m retired and don’t have to be any particular place at any given time, thus I don’t pay any attention to that sort of thing. Rather than having a “blinking light” at this location, they figure that all motorists should know the exact time. School zones have flashing lights, thus this location should be equipped with the same exact technology!! It’s another way for this small municipality to make money.
