Another Speed Trap

100_8997Back at the end of February, Gary was caught in a speed trap in the Rio Grande Valley.  But he did take the online driving safety class and at least avoided the points.  On our first trip south from Mt Carmel Junction right there it was – a Sherriff car parked along the side of the road.  Fortunately, we had just pulled out of the campground and weren’t yet up to speed when we approached the apparent speed trap.  Whew.

100_8996When we came back later from the other direction, there was the Sherriff car in the very same spot.  The next time we went that way, there was the same Sherriff vehicle in the very same spot again.  At this point, we had to take a little closer look – very attractive, in a plastic sort of way. 

And that vehicle and the “Deputy” still haven’t moved in two weeks.


  1. The car probably doesn't even run, but it apparently is effective.

  2. We saw one of those in Teslin, Canada. A very cardboard RCMP car.
