Corpus Christi, Texas Speed Traps
aka crosstown and spid….. if you’re west bound on spid, you’ll notice them sitting on the entrance ramp of westbound 358 coming from northbound 286. they’ll be leaning over the edge of the ramp (30 ft above ground level) with the laser binocs citing speeders westbound on 358 from the 30ft vantage point. ethics are at an all time low with this department. beware! they want your money!
two of the city’s finest are parking their motorcycles behind the bus bench on east side of road and then sitting on the bus bench. at first glance, it’s just two dudes waiting for the bus….until the one without the radar binocs runs out into the road and motions you to pull over. posted speed limit is 35mph. bus bench is in plain sight. no structures are on that side of the road as it is a vacant field….beware. they’ll be under the bench next.
Police car sits on Church parking lot with radar set on exit onto Callicoatte Rd. and on IH 37. Perfect advantage point since it is a hill
After you cross the Oso Bridge heading into Corpus and head up the next hill slow down to the 65 mph speed limit. There is a motorcycle cop that sits at the exit ramp at the bottom of the hill with his little radar gun. Once you pass him the speed limit drops to 60. He gets you as you crest the hill and then it’s too late.
59 crosses over HWY 37 and there is an exit right there. There is a hill which they sit right below or above depending upon which way you are coming (north to south or south to north). The highway patrol are there both sides of the road 24/7 to catch people.
