I was thinking we could discuss some speed traps in town? Where are they typically located?

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?

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.

Windcrest is awful with their 20 mph speed limit, strictly enforced. Leon Valley is pretty bad--right there on Huebner where it's 35 till you get out of LV--they hide on the side streets or their favorite spot is in the church parking lot. And ditto about Shavano Park....they are extremely strict.

Huh? Because they don't let people speed? They're strict, but they don't stop you unless you .... wait for it ..... speed.

If you go the speed limit, you can wave and smile as you drive by the radar gun.

Schertz on 35 is particularly bad as well.

Shavano Park is what is. It's in between 10 and 1604 and is a great go between. Just be careful. I've lived in the area since the late 80s and have never gotten a ticket.

You want a speed trap, go find the Antonian Catholic High School on West Avenue, there's a Castle Hills cop there who does NOTHING but get the speeders.

Funny...I don't notice any speed traps around the city.

Then again, I don't break the law and speed, either. So I never have to be on the lookout for the cops. I suppose the only people that have to worry about that sort of thing are those that are breaking the law, eh?

No, because I don't speed, but every day I drive by the Antonian and the same cop is ticketing a different person every day. EVERY DAY!
