Fort Worth, Texas Speed Traps
This is an almost oppressively long school zone. I have seen the same policeman parked there practically every other morning for years (and sometimes he brings a few friends along too). How he operates is that he hides just behind a large Baptist church building on the east side of James Ave. that looks as if it was built right up to the ‘build line’ on the property. Basically, if you are going north on James Ave. (and you’re not being overly observant) he will see you (and clock you) before you even know he’s there.
I’ve spotted a motorcycle police officer hiding behind the corner in front of the NTB. He catches people going over 30 mph and pulls them over. This is a 4-lane fwy and the speed limit is 30. Most people are still going 65 after exiting off 35W to enter Basswood Blvd or visit the Home Depot near by.
it is a daily thing to see cops in this little stretch of street because it turns into Haltom City also known as (haltom shity) after Belknap and they hide anywhere within this strech. this is a small trailerpark town that needs money so this is how they get it .
Speed limit is 60mph. Fort worth often works from mile marker 443 to 339.
you can spot Fort Worth, They are the only ones to stand out side the cars, and often make stops in the one mile stretch of S.E. Loop 820 that is in the City of Forest Hill, Easily confused! Forest Hill tends to give you 10-15 mph over the limit, that is over usally 75mph as a norm. But defenitely not a rule or policey.
This area has been posted a workzone for construction of a new freeway. When you exit from w.b 820 to w/b sw blvd you are in the work zone. The DOT failed to remove a 60 mph sign in the work zone..It was recently been removed. The zone is also not posted 50. If you had received a citation in that area you need to contest it..If workers were present the fine doubles..
