Southbound I-35 just before Stassney

Austin, TexasJul 18, 20170 Comments

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.

Ben White/71 near Montopolis and Woodward overpass

Austin, TexasJul 18, 20170 Comments

Cops sit parked perpendicular to the roadway in the median of HWY 71 around Montopolis. They also hide on the side of the access roads near Howdy Honda in the morning as you’re driving eastbound with the sun in your eyes. Typically using laser but I’ve seen some of the explorer cops actually run K band near the Riverside (where the speed limit is around 50-55 for no reason). They also hide under the Woodward overpass in the shadows of the overpass and clock you as you’re traveling eastbound. This is right after you pass under 35.

Going towards Parmer Lane motorcycle cops radar people in the mornings. Plenty of signs and other things for them to hide behind. Limit is 40mph. I’ve seen them 4 times. They got me once.

Giddings Texas

My son was driving from Houston to Austin with his high beams on, because it was hard to see deer crossing the road at night. The police was in front of my son the entire time and stopped him at the first stop light in Giddings. He told him that he stopped him because of his high beam. The officer commenced to giving him a warning for the high beams, but written him a $299 ticket for speeding instead. There was no court date on the ticket. So, my son called for his court date, but instead they gave him a pay schedule to pay $50 a week until its paid, and after 30 days you must pay $25 extra.

This happened years ago to my son while in college, and traveling through a little town going to Lamar University in Beaumont, TX, and the officer was giving out many tickets that were not warranted and he was later fired. That was good to hear. I applaud the leaders in that town who stood up tall and took actions.
