      •  Watch out on I-35 leaving San Antonio (1+ / 0-)

        as you pass into Selma.  There is a speeding trap under the overpass.  Selma shoots radar into San Antonio to pre-clock you.  The speed limit when you hit the overpass (which is the city limits of SA and Selma) drops to 45.  They charge the max limit on tickets - $100/per mph over the limit.  The back lot behind the "city hall" is acres of cars and trucks they impounded.

        •  Selma has sucked as long as I can remember, (0+ / 0-)

          that old '50's B&W displayed in front of CH/PS is there for a reason, they're proud of it. It's a no brainer since the road begins a long downgrade there (that stretch used to be way out in the boonies, no commercial development at all, now it's almost 100% built up all the way to Austin).
          I used to know almost every speedtrap in south, central, and west Texas, heh, too numerous to list (used radar detectors, sunroof for the airborne ones, etc).

          Of course anybody driving at this time of the year needs to 'drive safe', and not just because the poolice are out in force.
           (they were all over the main US hwy here already this morning @~0600, we've had numerous recent serious/fatal accidents because of all the Eagle Ford Shale activity, traffic is just crazy now)
