Denton, Texas Speed Traps
2 police motorcycles
Mingo Rd. as you are passing T.W.U. golf course, speed limit changes from 45 to 30 Mph. Because of change of road elevation you cannot see Motorcycle officer sitting on a side street running radar.
the area has multiple raised thoroughfares and many exit on-off ramps. You will be cruising along at the marked speed and then see an embankment ahead and wham ! the speed zone drops to 55mph. Many places for the Texas Highway Patrol to hide and Denton PD motorcycles monitor the speed trap regularly.
Exit ramp “malfunctions” cause backups along the shoulder of the interstate, with cars lined up on the shoulder, attempting to remove yourself from 18 wheel trucks passing by your door at 70 plus, results in being being pulled over by cycle cops waiting just up the interstate, “pulling out onto the interstate in spite of little or no oncoming traffic at times”, tickets issued for hefty fines, these “malfunctions” seem to happen at regular intervals on weekday mornings.
Cop sitting a the top of a hill pulling people over as they come up the hill. I don’t think he’s actually scanning them, just pulling them over and telling them they are speeding. He had the ticket issued within 60 seconds.
