We go through Leon Valley all the time and never seem to get a ticket. Maybe because we don't speed there?

You're not traveling the right streets then. Some have more coverage than others.....

The last time I drove by there I saw that at least two cars had been stopped by two different police. It was during school-slow hours I'm pretty sure.

You dont have to be an out of control criminal to get a speeding ticket. I mean, why even respond to say you dont speed so you dont have to worry about it? Thats jsut as ridiculous as starting a thread about speed traps becuz you do speed and are worried about being caught. Actually, youre all crazy.

Every day I drove by Antonian there was always some idiot speeding. Even with the rest of the traffic slowed down, these drivers would skillfully weave around cars to barrel down to the freeway. I hope these are the ones you saw getting tickets.

scuba steve You said it... Shavano Park for sure. If your cruise control works at 35 set it and forget it until you're through there. Oh yeah that patrol Military Hwy NW too, that's a 45 I think. Haven't been to those other places so I don't know about those.
Yep, that stretch of DeZavala between Lockhill Selma and NW Military is infamous for having a patrol car hiding out. The road dips a bit in places so you don't see him until it's too late. I always go 35 when I go through there.
NW Military is 45 through Shavano Park. I always remind anyone coming our direction to watch their speed there. There's also a stretch of road on Lockhill Selma between 1604 and Dezavala that is 35. They catch speeders there, too.

Another Castle Hills speed trap is when you get off 410 and go north on NW Military. It's 35 there, but some people don't slow down quick enough. Had a co-worker get caught in that one a couple of years ago.

I've also seen a patrol car on Orsinger Lane - I think it's 35 through there, but people exceed the limit and on George Rd between Lockhill and NW Military where it's 35.

There was a previous post in an older thread that mentioned IH 10 in the DeZavala - 1604 area. Patrol cars were seen stopped on the bridge by Cosco and it was thought they were clocking speeders and sending the info to the cops staked out on the freeway. I've seen them out there a couple of times, too.

I believe that Shavano Park P.D., Leon Valley P.D., Castle Hills P.D. are particularly aggressive in their speeding citations?

What do you guys think about the situation in the San Antonio area?

Grey Forest is another area to look out for, but since I usually don't speed I don't worry about it too much!

Plus, SA isn't notorious for being a town full of speed traps. Some places--like Jacksonville, Florida--are much worse. Sometimes I think we may have it a little too good here, and that a little more enforcement might make things a bit safer on our roads. Only this morning we saw where someone put their car in a ditch where 151 meets 1604. They must have taken that corner a little too hot and with the wet roads, that is a recipe for disaster!

People need to slow down a little in this town!

That's not a speed trap, though. That's just carelessness, not paying attention, going to fast, etc. Now, if they were in the ditch with the police getting a ticket that would be a different story.

My point was if we had a little more speed enforcement, accidents like the one we saw this morning would decrease...
