Colleyville, Texas Speed Traps
Cops hide in the Bluebonnet cemetery, and if you go even 2 miles over, they zoom out & Never give warnings. I have actually driven into the cemetery & stopped to express my disgust that it is a solemn place, not a place for their speed trap. I used to be a Colleyville resident, no longer live there. But when in DFW, I avoid the city entirely, will not give them even the revenue from sales tax. My money goes anywhere but there.
Pass this intersection multiple times daily, lived in Colleyville for 10+ years. Resident of Colleyville. Making a left at 4 way stop, Made the left, going south on LD Lockett, see Police SUV cruiser approaching north at least 200-300 feet away, As we get closer, he turns on his blinkers, pulls me over. Why the delay on the blinkers?
Comes over and says I did not stop at the stop sign. I disagree and say I did stop at the stop sign. he comes over looks at my car, looks at the front ( looking for front license plate), obviously looking to write multiple tickets.
His vantage point on the violation is questionable, he was moving north, there is a tree line. I stopped looked in all directions.
I have not had any citations in the past 20+ years. This officer was purely looking to write tickets for city revenue.
Motorcycle policemen running radar in short span of street where roadway narrows down from 4 lanes to 2 for about 1/4 of a mile. Speed limit drops from 40 down to 30 just for the narrow span. Policemen are dressed in black and hidding in shadows beneath the trees shooting radar at unsuspecting motorists.
Now that the city built a new CES on Pleasant run, the old CES is used mostly for administrative purposes. However, there is still a small set of older students that attend the Bridges program there. So, the city still enforces a school zone daily, during the usual school access hours, knocking the speed limit from 45 to 30 with unclear signs. A A Patrol car hangs out in the cemetery parking lot with a laser device at the ready and catches dozens of folks each day. Beware!
Be careful driving on Hall Johnson…speed limit drops from 35 to 30 at Pool going towards state highway 26
