Red has been on the highway to hell (aka I-35 to Dallas) and other major and minor Texas roads quite a bit this summer. Red has driven all over this great country of ours, and Texans take a back seat to no one when it comes to overly aggressive highway maneuvering. If you aint doing 95 in the left lane partner, you’d best get out of the way unless you like having some angry cowboy drinking a Bud Light in an F-250 pulling a trailer loaded with 2 horses, 6 goats, 5 bales of hay and his mother-in-law right on your ass. And if you’re just doing 75 in the right lane, you’re going to be the last one back to Abilene. Red just can’t remember the last time he saw someone pulled over by a DPS officer. Red has seen a few on the road, but they just don’t seem interested in pulling over Billy Joe anymore unless he has reached triple digits. Perhaps they are all policed out from chasing illegals down on the borderlands.
Apparently, someone is still getting ticketed however. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has posted a list of the counties where you are most likely to get bagged for speeding. So speed read on brother because as they say – Hell aint half full yet.
Lotta places you can’t do that fast. It’s hard to get over 75 on I-30 east of Rockwall and beyond.
