Harlingen, Texas Speed Traps
There are cops either pulled over or driving with traffic. If they think you’re going over 5 mph they’ll pull you over. Got a ticket 2 years ago on Good Friday! Couldn’t believe I got a ticket for going (supposedly) 65 or 70 on a 60 mph. Really? Do these cops even have lives??? It’s ridiculous to even have the speed limit at 60, let alone stop someone going 5 mph over.
The Patrol car sits in the Parking Lot waiting for cars going South on Camelot Drive across the Street from Camelot Senior Housing. Speed Limit is 30MPH
There is a camera on the second light that is hidden by the bridge. The traffic light cannot be seen until you are within 40′ of the light. The camera is really busy at this location.
Harlingen Police will park in parking lot by the girls softball fields and shoot radar on cars heading south on NewHampshire toward expressway. There is a blind turn that as soon as you come out of the cop has got you if your speeding.
Just north of Harlingen at Combes, speed limit decreases to 60 mph for no apparent reason. Worked by Combes Police and DPS.
