The Whole Town of Jonestown to Nameless Road along Ranch Road 1431

Everyone that lives in this area Knows to slow down through Jonestown. I tell Everyone that comes to visit me to be sure and slow to the 40 / 45 speed limit through town. They are there at all hours 24/7. It is a gathering place for the local police, Travis County Sheriff department and well as State Troopers. Most trips through you will for sure see one of these and more than likely all three. Drive the speed limit through this town, not a big town, but heavily targeted!

You will find an officer hidden somewhere on 1431 near Nameless Rd. The speed limit when heading West changes from 55 to 50 at the light.

Heading East the speed limit is 50 mph downhill.

They are unruly to the point of falsifying radar results. DO NOT go above the speed limit in Jonestown even by one mile! DO NOT drive in the left hand lane.

I’m amazed that Jonestown hasn’t made this list before. It’s the worst speed trap in the entire Austin metro area. The speed limits on 1431 vary from 45-55 through Jonestown and they definitely have no other source of revenue in this one horse town. Unfortunately, I live in Lago Vista and have to cross the Jonestown zone daily on my commute into Austin. The area is very hilly and if you’re maintaing your speed at the top of a hill, you’ll be exceeding it at the bottom. Watch out, cause they love to nail you. 1431 is also heavily patrolled by the local sheriffs. One bright spot, the Jonestown court is more concerned about revenue than destroying your driving record, so they are liberal with extra defensive driving classes or deferred adjudication.
