Rusk, Texas Speed Traps
speed limit changes several times within a very short distance,officers write tickets for speeding within sight of signs with higher posted speed.
On the south side of hwy 84 (AKA "6th street"),in a church parking lot, across the street from the dollar store. The speed limit is 35mph and this is at the bottom of a hill either way.You can’t see the cop from west, and from the east it is too late by the time you see him. Generally there after 6pm.But beware always!
If you are traveling north or south on Hwy 69 in between Lufkin and Tyler, you pass through the town of Rusk. The speed limit drops rapidly from 70 to 35 in less than a mile. Typically there is a Rusk police car parked at the bottom of the hill (on the left-hand side) if you are traveling North and (on the right-hand side) in you are traveling South in a parking lot that is surrounded by trees, so you do not see them when you are traveling South until you pass them.
Just as you enter in the city’s limits, it goes from 60 to 50, as you approach the state hospital and go down a hill. As soon as it hits 50, it immediately hits 40. Drive the speed limit here as there are a ton of cops swarming this area and hiding behind billboards. Be careful!
