Corpus Christi, Texas Speed Traps
Motorcycle Officer hides on Santa Fe usually facing southbound traffic catching people usually headed for Doddridge going 5mph or more over the 35mph limit.
Motorcycle-based laser gun is positioned on Plum Street overpass (northbound) or Burleson Street entrance ramp (southbound). About 8 cruisers are used to actually issue the tickets. Trap takes advantage of 55mph speed limit, easy concealment of enforcement vehicles, and limited ability to see other vehicles which have been pulled over. Impressive!
On the way to Texas A&M University. The speed limit flectuates between 35-45-35 on just 2 miles of road joining SPID and Ocean Drive. Even 5 miles more will get you a ticket. Beware, multiple motorcycle as well as patrol cars, will give group speeding tickets. Almost 30% of university traffic has already received a ticket on this road. Specially On Fridays and Month Ends.
This is a speed trap that seems aimed at tapping the students at the local university. The speed limit on Ennis Joslin from SPID is 45 mph. Suddenly, at the last section of Ennis Joslin before it intersects Ocean Drive, the limit lowers to 35 mph. The 35 mph range lasts for approximately 300 feet before you can turn onto Ocean Drive and continue going 45 mph. The radar cops sit here and pull over people at all hours of the day.
Going west into Corpus from the Island right before you hit the high bridge a cop will stand on the side, hit you with the laser and then radio cars on the other side to pull you over. The shooter is not sitting in cruiser and therefore hard to see
