The Biggest Speed-Trap Cities in North Texas

Maybe the street was deserted and you decided to open up the throttle. Maybe a tree branch was blocking the flashing school zone sign, or you didn't notice the cop as you rolled through the stop sign.

Whatever the particulars of the situation, practically every driver knows the flush of shame -- and the paroxysm of rage at the cosmic unfairness of traffic enforcement, and the gut-punch of watching a couple hundred dollars disappear from your account -- that come with a traffic ticket.

Those who regularly travel in Southlake or Hurst, or through any number of smaller burgs like Northlake and Pantego, know better than most. Those places top Unfair Park's authoritative list of North Texas' top speed traps.
