Austin, Texas Speed Traps
Motorcycle sits behind that concrete barrier under the tree–usually several more cycles/cars on 183 proper waiting for you; if you don’t exceed 50 on service road, you are okay–they seem to ignore people who speed up as they hit the entry ramp to 183
The motorcycle cop sits on side road and catches people with frequency. The cop who pulled us over, a young family of four, seemed to make a point of finding as many things wrong with the car (insurance, etc.) as he possibly could. He was mean and robotic and I know of two others who have been ticketed in the same area. The scam is at the bottom of the hill coming down from I-35 so you build up speed on a two lane road without realizing what is going on. The posted speed limit is not easily seen because there are so many signs and traffic moves rapidly in all directons. There are few light on the road, too. There is an elementary school not three block away and they never set up a speed trap for that. I guess the revenue is not that predictable.
Single Motorcycle, will use the 2222 Design center to hide or one of the small side streets at the bottom of the hill. Seems to be heaviest mid morning when traffic lightens up enough for the officers to safely pull people over.
Biker cops and unmarked cars are getting aggressive against eastbound traffic that gets rolling down the hill east of Wm Cannon Drive
