Childress, Texas Speed Traps
Officers sit under canopy at a gas station in the dark across the street on north side of courthouse, cannot tell a patrol car is sitting there until you are almost on top of the location.
This is a broad divided hwy – two lanes each way with turn lanes and wide shoulders. don’t be tempted to speed. A least one deputy sheriff patrols in a white pickup with” instant on” radar.
Fines, payable to the Justice of the Peace, begin at $150.00 for 1 (one) mile over the speed limit.
Officers set in the dark just off construction zone in one of 3 small parking lots with all lights off.
These state troopers are out for blood. Every time I go there I get stopped for something diffrent. I wish I could be in their shoes to see if they sleep at night.
DPS squad car sits a couple miles outside of town and hides. As people accelerate as they leave town, the speed limit stays 55 and you expect it to be 70 by the time you hit the sign…your busted! They don’t give warnings in this part of the country!
