Interstate 10

El Paso, TexasJan 02, 20040 Comments

On I-10 West at Zaragosa there is a hidden shoulder spot on the left as you enter the overpass where local PD likes to trap motorists. On I-10 East past Zaragosa Officers will often enter I-10 through the rocks and unpaved shoulder of the Gateway to come up behind motorists. While OK for them, trying doing that with you car and see what kind of ticket you’ll get!

Also watch out on I-10 through the city. Local PD has “unmarked”” freeway cops. They have no lightbars and scant markings on the sides. A burgandy Mustang and grey Impalla looking vehicles are common. Cases of people getting robbed by police impersonators make me wonder if unmarked vehicle cops is legal. “

White police vehicles lurk on shoulders of the highway, especially the left side (closest to the fast lane). A new mayor seems to be trying to increase his power by raising substantial funds from the motoring public.

I-10 East and West, and U.S. 54 North and South

The El Paso Police Department is currently using low profile Chevrolet Corsicas that have been retired from the detective ranks. The colors vary, but I have seen Dark Blue, White, and Green. These Corsicas have limo dark window tint with directional light bars just above the third brake light. They also have two alternately flashing red lights between the rear view mirror and the windshield. Some, but not all, of the units have radar equipment. And any external markings are limited to “El Paso Police Department Speed Enforcement”” on the driver’s and passanger’s side door in red letters to blend in with the vehicle’s color. “”El Paso Police”” is also stenciled along the top of the windshield in a mirror image so it can be read by the ‘violator’ when being pursued. “

High construction area from 50 miles east of town and cruising Troopers and Sherrifs looking for drugs. West of EL Paso inside the city lookout for fast Camaros lurking around the bends.
