Police will ticket you as you speed up from School Zone Speed of 35 MPH to School Zone Speed of 55 MPH. No radar indication but will give you a ticket for allegedly speeding up right before you get to the next sign. VERY EXPENSIVE.
He will get you going into town or coming out of town. Going out of town is a hill so you will automatically pick up speed. Going into town is hard to make the climb of the hill without giving a little gas . ( Impossible situation ) He always says you are speeding 10 miles over, whether you are or are not .
Local officer stations his vehicle by highway speed sign just outside town (open country area) and if you resume speed when you see the sign instead of after you pass the sign; he “flashes”” his radar and gives you a ticket for at least 10 mph over speed limit whether your doing that or not. “
The stretch of road on 171 in Covington, Tx city limits. Speed limit is 60 which is slower than most people drive it. The city police always have someone pulled over. Also on Fm 67(the crossing road) they will get you as well in the city limits. Leaving the city going west the speed limit is 30 , then 45 but you have to watch that spot coming into town from the westerly direction. If you don’t slow down to 30 they will pull you over.
Police hide in the trees totally unseen. Very aggressive and very expensive.
