Austin, Texas Speed Traps
Tax revenues are down. Speed traps are up. So one way or the other, you pay. There are too many officers on the payroll when this becomes their priority.
Officers hide behind street signs even though it is against APD policy. The cars are not visible due to how the street dips. One is tempted to not notice the downward hill they are traveling on and exceed the speed limit. It isn’t until one clears the large signs do they notice the police waiting. The police have destroyed the vegetation and state protected wildflowers and State flower in the areas they park on and drive across.
A mix of unmarked police cars and motorcycles. On weekends it is not unusual to see as many as eight police working this stretch of highway at any given time. Slow down as soon as you pass Creedmoor and watch your speed to at least William Cannon.
Every Sunday there are at least 2 motocycle cops sitting right there on freeway entrance from Grand Ave, also right before Howard Lane exit.
Two Motorcycle police sit in the parking lot of the school (Eden Park Academy) and shoot the radar south toward William Cannon. This covers the school zone while the school lights are flashing.
