Pantego, Texas Speed Traps
Spanish Tail and Pioneer Pkwy
Pantego cops like to sit in the parking lot of the Texas Appliance store or the Self Storage parking lot behind the trees. I aslo have notice them sitting in the parking lot of the Midas shop across the street.
Westbound Arkansas Lane entering Pantego limits
Speed limit drops as you enter Pantego from Arlington on Arkansas Lane. There is an incline in the road so you cannot see ahead. They are usually parked on the left side on a residential street or on the right in one of the business parking lots.
From Division (TX 180/US 80) to Pioneer Parkway (303). Have all of your inspections, insurance, licenses, equipment in proper shape (no vehicle defects) and don’t 1 mph over the limit. Also use your seatbelts.
The same is true from Pioneer Parkway to I-20 on Bowen in Dalworthington Gardens.
(It’s their "Rice Bowl").
Park Row Road near Bowen Road
If you are driving West on Park Row from Fielder, you will drvie down the steep hill towards Bowen Rd. The speed limit changes from 40 to 35 and cars usually speed up after rolling down the hill. Police Officers will sit on the west side of Pantego Christian School and pull over multiple vehicles at a time.
West Pioneer Parkway near South Bowen Road
I was getting my oil changed at the Jiffy Lube in the 2100 block of W Pioneer Parkway and noticed a Pantego motorcycle cop tucked up against the building. Within the 1/2 hour that I was there he had pulled over at least 5 or 6 people. The employee doing my car said that the cop is usually there every day and that he usually doesn’t have to sit there more then 2 or 3 minutes before he has someone pulled over.
Pantego is nothing more then one big speed trap that probably makes the majority of their revenues from the tickets that their cops write.
