El Paso, Texas Speed Traps
speed limit is 30. as you go down there are several small streets where several motorcycle cops usually hide. there is also some mustangs that hide around there.
The interstate 10 which crosses the city from east to west and viceversa, is constantly under construction, where speeds will drop from 60 to 50 and the fines are double because it is a construction zone. Even though some of the work is actually being done on the gateways or side streets the DOT which seems to work in tandem with police places the signs on the freeway. The worst thing about this speed trap is, that if you need to go anywhere in El Paso you have to take I-10 as there are no other freeways. Yes, El Paso is in TEXAS!.
just as you come over the big hill headed towards post or after the stoplight headed away from post there usually sits two mustang gts radaring. usually seen around 9 on weeknights and at random times on weekends
In the morning between 5 and 8 when the soldiers are heading in to post. He sits on the down hill side just out of view. You can not see him until you top the hill and it is too late.
This trap is normally motorcycle cops hidden in bushes on the side of the road, using lasers . So a radar detector w/o laser capability won’t help you here. The road is a miles-long downhill grade that makes exceeding the speed limit very easy to do if you’re not watching your speedometer closely. The locals love to lighten your wallet at this location.
