Beaumont, Texas Speed Traps
Beaumont PD (usually a motorcycle) hides in a parking lot entrance just around a curve with hand held radar. The speed limit is 35 but should be 45 at least. A taffic cop is always there on Saturday afternoon.
Especially in construction zones. Only out-of-state vehicles are stopped, and this area of TX adds on $200 if you don’t appear in court (later, of course, when out-of-state drivers have moved on, so won’t come), even if you pay the fine immediately. An unconstituional interference with right to interstate travel, but who can stay in TX and fight it, and in TX courts what good would it do anyway?
Jefferson County Task Force and Narc interdiction sweep units marked and unmarked patrol service roads and freeway. Will stop for 1 mile an hour over infraction. Also will stop for no apparent probable cause stating that a narcotics search is to take place. Use caution! Most units equipped with Gen III X-band or DATEC 360 wide band laser…
Washington Blvd. Between 23rd. and Major
Police Officers will stand at the end of the church parking lot at 1800 West Lucas, which is a 4 lane multi access road. The speed limit is 35 mph and they will consistently give tickets to drivers, telling them that they are going 50 mph or higher. By personal experience, I was pulled over at this same location and when I asked to see the laser radar reading, I was told that I couldn’t see it and that they didn’t have to show it to me. I don’t know if this is legal or not, but if there is legal documentation saying it isn’t I would like to know about it.
