Kingsville, Texas Speed Traps
Anyone who lives in the RGV and travels north on Hwy 77 to Corpus or elsewhere knows there are a plethora of speed traps on this route in every single town along the way. I travel from Los Fresnos (another speed trap town) to San Antonio 2 – 3 times a month on weekends. What I definitely know is this: Cops are mainly targeting weekend southbound travelers Fri – Sat and then shifting their focus to northbound travelers on Sun. If you travel in these directions on the days I’ve specified, then beware.
The one not listed is Kleberg County…Kingsville, Texas.
we had just stoped at a road side stand and was back on the road my radar was going off at ricardo on 77 south of kingsville tx speed drops from 70 to 55 i had hit the brakes and was doing 55 state police were on both sides of the road i had just told my wife we were going to get a ticket and sure enough we did he passed two cars to stop my red chev truck what can you do i tried to call 2 lawyers no return calls. you could tell by the look on his face, he never said he had me on radar, have a good day are anything i will never use 77 south through tx so now i have 2 tickets in 35 years
It’s not really a trap, but speed limit does change there going into Kingsville and there is a DPS officer there writing lots of tickets on and off all hours of the day. Truckers beware, they like you!!!Just a word of warning Kingsville police and DPS will get ya there!!
Kingsville Police patrol this area quite frequently enforcing the ridiculous 30 mph limit.
