Odessa, Texas Speed Traps
I was going home and I always go at the right limit but this morning I guess I wasn’t paying attention which is very rare and went 40mph on a 35mph. I don’t understand why they stopped me.
This is a 2 lane county road running on the south side of the Pondarosa Estates. The speed limit is 35 mph. I have always watched for it, but one morning I got caught running 45—zap $167. The officer told me it is a residential area. All of the houses face away from the road and are at least 100 feet from the road. The DPS patrols it before daylight and after dark.The county commissioner who set the speed limit will not return calls to discuss it.
It goes from 40 to 30 real quick, the officer was parked right behind the pawn shop and got me. Be sure to slow down around there.
I have been stopped SEVERAL times by by highway patrol for speeding. If your are traveling from West the speed limit drops from 75 to 70. They will get you every time!
From time to time Odessa police will setup at the Town and Country at this intersection. One officer will clock the motorists coming over the overpass while a line of officers standby to ticket speeding motorists. The speed limit on highway 191 drops down to 55 and motorists coming over the overpass are typically slowing down but can’t see the police waiting for them in the distance.
