Default But They Have To Slow Down In OK

Yeah, there are a lot of them up there. It's not just college and university students, but definitely travelers, truckers, and even some couriers, a few of them dispatched from the very office in which I work. And there are also a lot of Oklahoma state troopers waiting near the state line just so they can catch some unsuspecting Texan speeding across the line while forgetting that Oklahoma is a "no-tolerance" state. They see the Texas license plates and they're ready to jump.

Really.

I once took a wrong fork on my way to Amarillo and after awhile, I noticed the speed limit sign was 75 mph. I was thinking to myself, there's something wrong, here... I said something and someone in the back said, you're right, we are in Oklahoma! It was awhile before I found a place to turn around, and I had to pay the toll twice -- one going and one coming back ... then I had to go all the way back to Wichita Falls.

Oh my goodness, I could not agree with you more. Oklahoma state troopers are like roaches, there's too many of them and they just love pulling over Texans (where is the love?) and Oklahoman and whoever else they want to pull over for, you guessed it, speeding. I do not know what is the deal but something has got to give. I love how the Texas license plates look and of course, so do Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

All I can say is be careful my fellow Texans, because one day I be living in Texas, and want to drive down to Oklahoma (with my Texas tags) to visit my folks.

There are a few places in Texas where they'll be more than happy to pass out green stamps...

Oh Lord! I am currently watching to news and Oklahoma State Troopers on U.S. Highway 75 in Tulsa will pull over speeders speeding in construction lanes and will give you a $1,000 fine and will add points to your records which could add more fines. This is due to many OU fans traveling to Texas to watch the big Bedlam match. That is a testament that police in Oklahoma do not play. It's insane. (clears throat) Go Texas! (clears throat again)

Excuse me, but I meant to say the "Red River Shootout."

I am afraid of the police in Oklahoma. Because of this, I only drive 5 over the limit or just the limit and do all that I can to keep a clean driving record and pray that the police in Oklahoma do not pull me over for anything.

I won't even do 1 over unless I'm desperately having to pass somebody on the left. Otherwise, I try to go five below.
