Houston, Texas Speed Traps
Cops are there at least once a month. Beware, they are on foot and run out into the street to pull you over.
Cop will sometimes sit either behind the pair of barricades or at the private access road (obscured by bushes/trees so you can’t see them), this is when the speed limit goes from 35 MPH to 45 MPH. It’s usually HPD that’s there.
Near downtown. Driving on the service streets next to Hwy 69, the far left lane lets you go straight or turn left for many lights. However, at Congress it turns onto a left only turn with only a faded indicator on road, but the intersection and the road on the other side looks just like the others. The Police set up in a parking lot underneath the hwy and flag people in. Four police officers work the trap. One sits in the car recording video, one flags you into the garage, another tells you where to park, and the last one gives you a ticket.
There is one stretch of Westpark Dr between Wilcrest Dr and West Houston Center Blvd where the street is merged into a single lane. The speed trap is the nearest to Wilcrest Dr. The speed limit will drop from 45mph to 30mph. Speed traps are on both directions as I have received speeding tickets travelling in both directions.
Cops queue up, sometimes 3 deep. Catch someone about every 5-10 minutes.
