Austin, Texas Speed Traps
Motorcycle hiding in alley on side of Chucks..not visible.
Cop waiting on hill East of I35 underpass. Street is 30mph limit. Cop is regularly there weekday mornings.
Got two tickets during this stretch, but the revenue generation is easy pickings. Everyone speeds when there’s no traffic, so you just need to be unlucky enough to be noticed by highway patrol when they happen to be passing through, which seems to be often. At the time, they will charge you extra for workers present when there are none and for speeding on a construction zone, even if it’s more construction-adjacent, with all the heavy equipment and any change in road conditions behind concrete barriers. Be vigilant and merge with caution.
Motorcycle cop runs laser towards the bottom of the hill near the Valero gas station. Looking for speeders coming down the hill and/or exiting the school zone. Typically they’re shooting east from the Alta Vista Ave intersection towards the top of the hill. The school zone hours typically run pretty sporadically but they’re almost always sitting there during those times.
Unmarked squad car sits perpindicular right off the access road hiding behind bushes at the entrance of the shopping center. They sit before the light at Stassney and nail you as your driving by the car dealerships. They’re usually parked so they can easily pull onto the access road then the onramp to 35. This is typically in the morning since there’s usually no traffic going southbound on 35 south of downtown.
