Tyler, Texas Speed Traps
The city of Tyler sets up 5 to 10 motorcycle police to sit in various hideouts. Then you see them racing back and forth to stop motorists for speeding. The speed limit goes from 30 to 45 then to 60 mph. Then when you receive your speeding citation the policeman tells you he didn’t clock you but his partner did back up the hwy. So in my case a brown van was clearly speeding but I was stopped. I have a Class A CDL and Tyler, Tx has a zero tolerance for truck drivers so there is no recourse for reducing the violation from a moving violation. I have two speeding tickets on my record both in the past 3 years and both from this location.
If you are headed South on Beckham just passed 5th Street, be careful. A Motorcycle cop has been waiting in the Mother Frances Eye Clinic parking lot during morning commutes picking off motorists left and right. Most drivers round the curve at the train tracks at 50+ mph and the speed limit is an unnatural 35mph.
4 lane divided road headed down 2 or three rolling hills. Speed limit at top of hill is an unnaturally slow 40 mph but your vehicle naturally picks up speed, even with foot off gas pedal, going downhill. So you have to break some. Partway down hill the speed limit drops to 35, so you really have to break, or get caught by the officers who regularly sit on on of the off streets with their radar. And I mean regularly because it’s a cash cow.
Just comming into Tyler on HWY 69 from Interstate 20 at the Loop moto cops set on the west side ofthe road and run Lazer to get people.
Been got twicew in the same spot.
A moto cop is often hiding on one of the side roads as you come down the hill on Shiloh going towards Paluxy.
