Double Oak, Texas Speed Traps
Double Oak PD hides behind the Crossroads Bible Church sign running LIDAR, which is a fitting name.
Speed drops from 40 on flower mound side down to 30 into Double Oak. The town has no other income so the pick pocket everyone driving to the school and golf course.
near Range Dr. sits under the trees off the street as close to the fence as possible really like to give tickets for Expired Inspection on the fifth day of the five day grace period, they still get the $20 dismissal fee – good job! Keeps the crime rate low
Approaching Lantana Trail on FM 407 from the east, you hit a stop light at the intersection. Since it is a 3 way intersection (no traffic coming from your left when you are turning right onto Lantana Trail) many people don’t make a complete stop to turn right when the light is red. This intersection is under the jurisdiction of Double Oak (according to the DO police chief), and a DO police car will park on the side of FM 407 just east of the intersection. If you don’t make a complete stop on red, you will be ticketed. A family member of mine received such a ticket during the day, although I have also seen the DO police car there late in the evening. So beware.
The speed limit is 30 on Simmons Road. The officers situate themselves away from the road and use their lasar guns to get residents and non-residents on the street. The have purposely kept no street lights on the road and posted 6 small speed signs. Avoid this street! In fact, avoid Double Oak, Texas at all costs!
