Lufkin, Texas Speed Traps
Texas Highway Patrol (State Troopers) run in packs of up to four patrol vehicles. I have observed as many as three patrol units, simultaneously as if on signal, stopping three individuals for various causes. THP overloads certain area’s on a rotation so beware. They are out to write a fist full of tickets and then move to Hwy 59 South of Lufkin Loop. Coupled with the Huntington speed trap just south makes this a risky section of road to use.
They like this area especially around school traffic hours
Don’t speed they like to work
Tulane Dr. between Timberland and the loop. The speed limit during this 2 mile stretch is 30 mph. Nice road, lots of trees…makes it very easy to get caught.
Heading out of Lufkin towards Diboll the speed limit goes up to 70 MPH but as you come to Burke (about 2-3 miles), the speed drops to 55 MPH.
