Paige, Texas Speed Traps
DPS recently started setting up on eastbound side of US-290 approx. 1/4 mile past 55 mph speed limit sign in Paige. Sets up on parking pad about 50 ft off road behind large group of bushes. This zone is a sudden drop from 70 mph zone – very little time to fully slow down. Usually operating days, but night operation cannot be ruled out.
This is a very bad speed trap!!! The posted speed is 70 but drops to 55 for adout half a mile and then goes right back up to 70. Before you realize it has changed you have went through it. There are no gas stations or stores to let you know that you are in a town.
State Highway 290 near County Trunk FM 2769
Watch out when the speed limit changes from 70 to 55. I was clocked going 69 in the 70 zone, and the officer gave me a ticket saying 69 in a 55 zone.
