Fort Worth, Texas Speed Traps
FortWorth working both side of I-35 north and south bounds from Risinger Road up to the I-35 and I-20 and Loop 820 interchange. There have been up to 3 or so police cars will have there customers lined up. The funny thing is, they’ll stop and park under a bridge or anywheres and get out and fire away.
Heavy enforcement anywhere, anytime between Fort Worth and Amarillo. They use all methods imaginable. Some DPS Troopers are dangerous and are making a bad reputation out of the rest of them. Common locations are Rhome, Decatur, and 100 mile radius around Childress. Rest is patroled at anytime day or night. Also known to attempt to fool CB’ers. BE CAREFUL!!
This is as clear an example of speed limits being used solely for revenue generation as I have ever seen. SH 170 is a 6-lane rural highway extending from IH-35W to SH 114 on the north edge of Fort Worth. Speed limit is 55; based on the low traffic volume and thin development, it probably should be 70. Then, just before the intersection at Alta Vista, the limit drops to 40 for absolutely no reason. Fort Worth PD and Tarrant County sheriff hang out right at the corner, which is at the top of a hill. You’re dead before you ever realize it. Don’t go over 45 here, and don’t exceed 60 on any of Hwy. 170.
A line of motorcyles and police cars (Camaros w/h.p. engines) sit on the entry ramp off John White road on the down side. Totally out of site of unsuspecting autos heading North on 820. Seen as many as 6 waiting. Your hit with radar and one of the motorcycles or police cars are released and you didnt even see them until they are on you. Like vultures ready for the picking.
