Talty Texas I-20 between 492 and 493 E/B

Talty, TexasJun 22, 20140 Comments

Chief/Officer Part-time department! Squad cars are 1 marked Chevy Tahoe and 1 brand new marked Dodge Charger! Officers sit on top of the on ramp from Helms Trial to get on E/B I-20 “This is at least a 1/2 mile outside the city” but they shoot you from behind as you go under the overpass traveling E/B. Once again he does not sit in the city limits. You never see him because he is above and behind you as you pass him! If their out working, they will be sitting here! These guys think they are the Hi-way patrol! Him sitting outside the city limits when he clocks you might help you in court. Speed limit is 65mph the jumps up 10 miles down the road! Where the guy sits and hides makes this a true speed trap!

Exit 493 I-20

The town of Talty annexed a small patch of I-20 in 2003 to gather revenue for its one man (part-time) police force. They have now ramped up their ticket writing to pay for his (now) full-time salary and a new police car, etc. There are only two people on salary in Talty. There is not even a town here. Court is held in nearby Forney, and the town meeting once a month is in a church sandwiched between some trailers and a cornfield. I live nearby and he has people pulled over continually. Speeding is one thing, but he writes 85+ mph tickets on locals here who have never driven over 65 in their lives. Watch out around exit 495, I-20 east of Dallas. Even watching out won’t help you though as the tickets the "Chief" writes have no basis in reality. Just prepare to be robbed.
