Allen, Texas Speed Traps
Malone road between Bethany and Stacy
Motorcycle units and patrol cars sit on cross-streets. They will sometime wave you over after clocking you.The lasers they use are not detected by detectors(I’ve used three types). In thier defense, people go WAY over the posted 30mph and the residents are on thier backs I have been told
When you are traveling down Bethany Road between Jupiter and Allen Hieghts, becarefull they sit in the cultasacks that can be visible from bethany but not connected then they radio either a Motorcop or a Ford Police Intercepter give the discription speed and distance from them then you get pulled over if you get the scorpion scrambler/ radar/ laser detector you should be able to get a fair enough space to slow down before he can clock you.
75 South and McDermott
The officer will sit at the last entrance to the Allen Presbyterian hospital and clock you, then exit and immediately get on the freeway. I have received over 3 tickets from the same officer at about the same time. He will claim you were going 70mph when you really were only going 65mph.
W. McDermott Rd., between Alma and Custer
Allen Office seats in tree covered private driveway on So. side of McDermott, 1 to 1.5 ,miles W. of Alma, tracking E. bound traffic at the bottom of a hill. Speed is posted at 45 mph, will ticket for anything above 55 mph and should !! Traffic at many times reaches 65 and above, this is much too fast for the road and should be monitored. Be aware, Offices also seat at many of areas monitoring traffic on the McDermott, they also travel with traffic and monitor while rolling. There have been several bad accidents in this area, all due to speed and cross-traffic. It looks as if the speed limit was set for cross-traffic problems as this is a residental area. Also, be aware, the speed limit is reduced to 40 mph, 1 mile E. of Allem on McDermott in the Waters Crossing area at the bottom of the hill at the traffic light, is also monitored by Allen PD seating on Waters Crossing cross street.
