Katy, Texas Speed Traps
Cane Island Parkway North of I-10
There is a short stretch between hwy 90 and the north end (termination) of Cane Island Parkway where the speed limit is a slow unnecessary 30mph (non residential road). There are no private driveways and separate pedestrian walks far from road separated by trees and bushes. There is very little pedestrian traffic on the sidewalks (approx 10 per day). 3 – 4 police officers hide and issue tickets on this road daily. It is the source of many social media threads. According to rumors, someone in the upper income ($500-$1.5) neighborhood decided everyone else was driving too fast and petitioned for the limit to be lowered. It is a constant hassle for any guests into the neighborhood who would never expect such slow speeds on a non-residential parkway. A majority of the community is upset about it but no one knows how to change it.
I-10 West at Pin Oak exit
If you exit I-10 West and turn left to go over overpass on Pin Oak, there is no speed limit sign on the bridge. Once you get to bottom of the hill of the over pass you will then see a speed limit sign for 30 mph. The city of Katy PD sits down there and shoots radar onto the overpass to catch you as soon as your car starts the decline and then nails you for exceeding 30 mph well before you ever get within sight of the sign!
