Deer park needs more speed traps. I thank the police for their efforts in making the streets of Deer Park safer,a constant effort to educate the public and enforce the laws is needed.

someone once told me they speed because when you average it out with the slow drivers they are at the speed limit? What? Don't want a ticket then I suggest you stay at or BELOW the posted limits. Write them all up deputy dog, the city needs the money to fund the golf course.

Just look for the monster drink empty cans on the side of the road. That's where they're at.

Keep in mind that with the 20 mph speed limit in residential areas the speeding is hard to enforce. They cannot ticket anyone in these areas unless they are going over 30 mph.

Where did you come up with this notion?

(I'll wait for your response. Although I have an idea what you're going to claim.)

I believe the issue is that in order to have the residential speeds be 20 the city must have special approval from TxDot. Otherwise they are 30. Deer Park residential speeds are not special exceptions. Therefore tickets are rarely given for speed under 30 in these areas and could be easily dismissed in court.

I could certainly be wrong though. It's happened before.

Yes, you "could certainly be wrong."

TxDOT only has jurisdiction over setting speed limits on the state HIGHWAY system.

For information on Texas traffic laws, you could start with the Texas Transportation Code, section 542.

As far as the city's legal obligations and compliance with state traffic laws, they have those pretty well covered (as allowed under state law).

You can also find the specific ordinances that govern the city's speed limits at:
http://library.municode.com/HTML/10635/level3...

Note: they also reference the authority to various state laws within the ordinance and/or footnotes.

For streets designated as 20MPH under the city's ordinances, just click the link in the above document to see Schedule D, section 66-193.

It might also be noted that tickets have been written for only driving 22mph in a 20mph zone. So, if you think that the city ordinance does not meet Texas law and you might get out of the ticket, you "certainly could be wrong."

For those of us that do not drive above the posted speed limit, speed traps are not a problem. For those that do drive over the posted speed limit and do not like speed traps, maybe the fines are not high enough.
