Houston, Texas Speed Traps
hidden officer in car ticketing citizens rolling through stop sign on Wickhester
About once a month, usually on a Friday between 5:00PM and 7:00PM, four or five officers with hand held Lidar standing in the last break in the median.
They are hidden by trees in the median and step out to stop speeders coming down Wescott towards Memorial.

On Highway 249, south of Chasewood Park Dr. and north of Gregson Rd. the speed limit is 65mph. However, in the 3 miles stretch between those two roads, the speed limit is 60mph. This is left over from prior to the completion of the 249 tollway. At the time of completion, HCTRA and TXDOT were supposed to match the speed zones to 65mph all the way. However, TXDOT forgot to do this, and now Harris County Sheriffs are using it as an opportunity to capture unsuspecting drivers passing through it. TXDOT has admitted the problem and is working to change the signs, but HCSO is running 2-3 officers in the short stretch of highway.
