Rockdale, Texas Speed Traps
Speed limit is 45 mph, apparently there is a 30 mph sign near the municipal area where the speed drops for about 15 seconds and then it goes back to 45 mph. I didn’t even notice and next thing I knew there were headlights behind me. First speeding ticket ever and definitely a speed trap.
My wife released the gas peddle on the 2010 Prius as soon as we saw the new speed limit of 60 and the car coasted thru the subsequent 50 mph sigh at 68. You must apply the brakes. We were busted. It is an ideal speed trap. I appealed to the JP for relief but got a note from a clerk suggesting there was no excuse for being 18 over the limit. $200.00.
Traveling north on US77 and taking the interchange to US79 will result in a changing from 70 mph to 50 mph with no signage to indicate the change. Local yokel will be posted just east of the interchange on US79 due to knowledge of this information disconnect.
Nearly invisible 30mph sign (from 45mph). As sign comes into view, police car appears with siren and flashing lights.
