Madisonville, Texas Speed Traps
Two times in a month, driving two different vehicles. I have been pulled over by the same cop using the same "Failure to use turn signal to move into the right hand lane" after moving over to pass him. Both times I did use my turn signal, both times I was also harassed. Please be warned.
Black patrol car about 12 minutes south of Madisonville. Look for FM 2989 + 1.1 miles south, where I-45 interstate “vanishes” due to bend to left, and begin of next downhill. From this spot drive 8 miles south to reach FM 1696 or 13 miles south to reach Huntsville Municipal airport.
Any time you travel through this town, only do the speed limit. The whole town up to Bryan/College Station is full of radar. They especially catch college students leaving and returning to school. Never speed through this area.
