MLK and Chestnut

School zone. Normally 35 MPH, it is 20 MPH at times school is about to start or lets out (about 7:30-8 AM and 2:30-3 PM). Motorcycle cops usually hide at the intersection just east of Chestnut and MLK, right after the school zone line.

North Lamar going North-under the bridge at the 183 interchange

Two motorcycle cops around the corner in the tunnel under the interchange at about 7900 North Lamar and 183 with Radar guns

Riverside Drive just west of I-35 intersection

On the winding, scenic part of Riverside Drive between Congress and I-35, ther are motorcycle police waiting to give you a ticket for going over the speed limit, 30-35 MPH. They are generally right around the parking lot of Landry’s Seafood. It is tempting to drive like a race car driver on the windy parts, but DON’T DO IT!

Wickersham Lane, between Cromwell Circle and Riverside light

Motorcycle police are cleverly hidden on the sidewalk right across from the Country Club Apartments driveway. This is an easy pickings site. There are plenty of UT students who are picked off for driving over 30 MPH . AMD and other area employees who use Wickersham as a cut through to Riverside get caught coming to work AND at lunch time. Another easy ticket is for not coming to a complete stop at the Riverside & Wickersham light, SERIOUSLY. The final easy ticket is for pulling into the far lane when turning. It turns out that one can only take the first last in a turn, again SERIOUSLY! Good luck! 🙂

I-35 north and south bound from Yeager Ln to Wells Branch

Police Station just down Parmer so the cops love to lay in wait at the Parmer on ramp north bound and the south bound off ramp or under Howard Ln overpass. Today there was a Police SUV south bound on the side of I-35, lights flashing with the officer standing so that he could not be seen until your car passed his. He was pointing his radar at cars headed away from him, so there were others laying in wait further in toward Austin.
