Amarillo, Texas Speed Traps
A cop usually sits in the abandoned parking lot of the old gas station that sits right off the hill when merging onto Bell from the Blvd.
They sit east of the 34th st. overpass on a patch of grass or even down a bit further behind a tree and a stop sign and clock you as you top the bridge and start down. The speed lim it is 40 mph.
This speed trap pertains mostly to the eastbound traffic on I40, but I have seen them on the westbound traffic also. The specific location of the trap is behind the bushes across the street from Denny’s at the intersection of I40 and Ross. Motorcycle cops like to pick off the traffic as they are coming over the bridge, which features a slight hill. As you go over the hill they pick you off with a laser gun from about a quarter of a mile or maybe more. One officer operates the gun and three or four do the chasing. I have seen them out there from anywhere between 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
5-7 motorcycle cops sit in the bushes just past the Bell street crossover,and as you pass one lasers you and another will pull you over.
They sit underneath the I-40 overpass and catch people headed north on I-27 into downtown.
