New Braunfels, Texas Speed Traps
The speed limit was dropped recently to 50 mph. Signs were replaced overnight however there are very few signs. DPS and Sherriff run radar driving up and down road. Also sitting behind shrubs on side roads shooting radar. Hwy has always been 55-60 mph in the past. Officers always have someone pulled over every time I drive down this road.
there is a cop sitting at the entrance almost every morning. the speed limit is 30, but you can easily go 45 without even noticing. there is a giant hill that aids the cops in giving out tickets. you almost have to ride your brakes to keep from getting pulled over.
Watch out when Exiting IH 35 North #187 in New Braunfels Texas, the exit speed is marked 45 mph.
A Police car parks on the right, under a tree located just at the end point of the exit part of that lane.
The lane changes into an IH 35 North entrance lane at that point, please note this because most drivers moving into this lane to enter IH 35 North are speeding up, over 45 mph, which makes merging with side road traffic difficult.
The police ignore drivers going over 45 mph as they enter this lane from the side traffic and target drivers exiting who haven’t slowed down to 45 mph yet.
I use this exit every day and see many drivers stopped because they were going over 45mph in the exit lane.
I am fairly certain this trap is a big revenue generator for the city.
The speed goes from 35mph to 25mph one block from the traffic circle/plaza, on all four sides. NBPD will sit in adjacent parking lots on San Antonio St and Sequin Ave, or just off the circle.
In this short stretch of road the speed limit is posted 35, 45 and 55 mph. If you are in the 35 zone and begin accelerating to 45 when you see the 45 sign, you are subject to a traffic ticket. When in the 55 zone, slow to 45 immediately when you see the 45 sign. Don’t think you are safe by being down to 45 when you get to the sign. There simply is not a clear delineation of where you are expected to be going the speed designated by the sign and the police take advantage of this.
