Electra, Texas Speed Traps
Electra PD works the interstate(about a 6-8 mile stretch) all times of the day and night. They also find a reason to search almost every car they pull over. I am a local and have watched ever since they annexed this area into the city limits about 5-6 years ago it has been used as a revenue generator. It runs from about Midway Church Rd. on the east westward to the Wilbarger County line.
US HWY 287 Southbound. Local police car, will hide in the center divide at night and heavily enforce the 65MPH night rule (irregardless of day of month). City needs the traffic tickets revenues very badly to fund eroding tax payer base. Thus, no warnings, just straight up tickets….and while at that, they will add couple of MPHs to the actual speed. A very savvy method of jacking up your ticket, since you cannot request the speed reading.

Electra city police like to stop people on highway 287. There may be some jurisdiction issues here because the hiway is not in the city limits.
