Highlands, Texas Speed Traps
I-10 and East side of San Jacinto bridge to Thompson Rd exit
Harris County Sheriff and DPS stalk this area frequently. Especially East bound traffic looking for drugs and illegals being transported Eastward. Will pull vehicles over for only a few miles over to increase odds of snagging a bigger bust. Stand up for your rights not to be unlawfully searched and you can plan to be detained extra time while they check your license several times and prod around your vehicle looking for any excuse to search. Pulled me out and ask me several questions that they then tried to trick my wife into answering differently to give them probable cause. Always be truthful with officers and you need not worry, but be careful of trickery on their part. They brag they stop more drugs and illegal aliens here than at the border.
South Main Street near Interstate 10
Highway Patrol (DPS) and the Sheriffs Dept. both use this spot. Going north from I-10, 1/2 block, they hide behind the ‘Welcome to Highlands” sign.”
