Dallas, Texas Speed Traps
This is a trap but not a "speed" trap per se but nonetheless a trap.
There is a no U-Turn sign on the overhanging traffic cross-pole between the traffic lights. This sign cannot be seen from the inside lane if there is a taller vehicle in the outside left turn lane.
Rabid, obnoxious, disrespectful, motorcycle cop lurks, waiting in the shopping center, off his bike, hand waving people into the parking lot, giving out tickets like ads, purposely ignoring driver’s complaints the sign can’t be seen. There are photographs and videos attesting to this.
In the block between Southwell and Royal on Hines are two no U-turn signs placed on posts in the median where they can’t be missed, although one of these signs is for a left turn that does not exist – If you are in this lane there is no choice but to take a U’ie.
Officer cranks out tickets at one every few minutes at $260 a pop.
Squad car sits on concrete median at bottom of bridge at either end. Mostly at night. When you clear the rise, he’s got you with a clear shot at a short distance. No escape!
I-45 nothbound all way is 70 mph and all on a sudden speed limit by Wilmer City is 60 mph. Isn’t that a crime that the city drops the highway speed limit intentionally @60mph??? Isn’t there any law, regulation on city’s desire whatever they want to do will do to earn it’s revenue??
First of all they are illegally, and wrongfully collecting speeding money from innocent drivers. Secondly, a court clerk, behaves uncivilized with the drivers on phone who are the victims of these speed traps. I have never heard anyone talk so brutal, with no respect to a person. She should be fired immediately.
Traveling south down Buckner Blvd. toward Garland Road. Speed limit is 40 mph and posted. Saw a large white truck coming up behind me with lights on the top, but thought it was a construction truck because of the construction of a new bridge on NW Hwy. In it were two Dallas police officers…they turned on their lights and stopped me. Thankfully, they just gave me a warning, but I have never seen a truck like this…seems to be unmarked. Beware!
Every day for the last 2 weeks an officer is sitting out waiting to bust people for rolling through the stop sign
