Denton, Texas Speed Traps
Aprox 1/2 mile after Teasley intersection, speed limit changes to 30 MPH going DOWNHILL! Cops frequent this spot with radar, as well as anywhere on Dallas Drive from exiting I35.
There are so many cops with radars in Denton, watch your speed anywhere in Denton, as I have seen radars just about on every main street in Denton. Other places I have seen radars include Ryan Road, Hickory Creek Road, ANYWHERE ANYTIME ON I 35 where the speed limit is 50, Ft Worth Drive near I35 both directions, Lilian Miller Parkway before Teasley heading south, 288, 380, University. JUST DON’T SPEED IN DENTON, there are cops everywhere anytime.
Squad car sits on Greenspoint Circle watching to catch speeders coming over a hill on Colorado. The speed limit is 30 mph. I stopped today and gave Police Officer Vernal a chewing out and told him to move his squad car and go perform real police duties. He told me that he was dn refused to move. He’s been sitting at that corner for days It pisses me off no end when police officers who are paid to protect and serve sit on their butts waiting for an unspecting soccer mom to come along and go just fast enough cruising downhill to get a ticket. Coming off that hill you actually have to hit your brakes to keep you speed below 35 mph and that’s why it’s a speed trap. It’s a real money maker for Denton and I hate it.
Traveling south on N Loop 288, approaching Highway 380, there are several of the bright orange and black signs notifying of construction ahead. None of these have a reduced speed limit. However, just before cresting the overpass that carries traffic over the state highway there is a standard black and white sign. This reduces the speed limit from 60mph to 40mph at a point where simply lifting your foot off the gas, without applying the brake, almost ensures a speed 15 to 20mph over the limit as you crest the overpass into the radar.
Local cops write ticket, after ticket, after ticket to people driving to work. Mostly a 35mph…most are on the high side of 39-40 if at all.
