Roby, Texas Speed Traps
From Rotan to Sweetwater on Tx. 70
Highway 180 from Hobbs turnoff, 10 miles west of Roby to overpass 7-8 miles east of town. Roby has several sheriff Tahoes equipped with radar and most of the time 2 DPS cars although that count can increase to 4 or 5 at times. Rotan to Roby any time as well as Roby to Sweetwater, mostly in the morning, afternoon after work and for the 11 pm shifts in Sweetwater. At night the sheriff’s dept. pulls you over after passing through one of the drop down speed zones at the edge of town and says they clocked you speeding even though you may be well below the speed limit since you’re aware of their tactics. Their next remark is "have you been drinking?" and if that’s not the case, if you’re young the next thing they say is "I smell marijuana smoke". They are just looking to score whatever they can for any illegitimate purpose and are known for profiling Hispanics and blacks, especially on 180.
