Lubbock, Texas Speed Traps
Motorcycle and patrol cars posted on side streets shooting laser or radar. Speed limit is 45 on this 6-lane road.
As you travel south on Milwaukee from 4th St to 34th St, the speed limit is 50 mph. When you cross 34th heading the limit drops to 45 mph and stays 45 until you pass Spur 327, then the limit is again 50 until you reach 98th St. The same holds true when heading north up Milwaukee. Watch out especially in the area near Westwind Elementary School, City View Christian Fellowship church and the Canyon West Mall. That area is heavily patrolled…the cops, either in cars or M/C’s sit next to Starbucks and work in teams. Beware of this area!!!
Police officer hides on 116th E. of Indiana, and uses a laser gun to detect speed. Freedom of information act discloses there are no required engineering studies to warrant speed limits set at 45 MPH as of August 2009. City extended speed limits when they extended city limits to include this section of roadway. Engineering studies are required by federal and state laws prior to changing any speed limits below statutory speed limits set by the state.
On Indiana Ave. in between the South Loop and 50th, a MC cop sits on a street by the stop signs and clocks the am traffic going North bound.
Cops are sitting in the Market Street parking lot between Indiana and Quaker on 98th Street, also they hide in the construction area between Quaker and Slide. The speed limit is 40mph in the construction zone.
