    The story said the officer misspoke and meant 51 in a 45. 6 over is a standard alert setting for radar and common everywhere which is why I set my cruise at 5 over. I have not been stopped for speeding under those circumstances in 40 years.

    The only caveat being speed traps where the speed limit was lowered and I missed the sign change.

    She may have been coming down the frontage road by the RV park, I think it’s 50 there. I Wet back and listened to it several time with headsets on and I think he is saying 61 in a 50 IMHO.

    I know where you’re talking about; pretty sure that’s a work zone and posted at 45 right now, except one little sliver past O’Reilly’s.

    Without a transcript, I hear what I hear and really don’t care about this honestly. When I retired in 2016, I seriously considered an LE career for a bit.

    Then I realized in every public interaction, the individual officer has to be a strategic corporal, even if you do everything ‘right’.

    No thanks.

    Not that I wouldn't go there if I was closer but it would be a long drive for me. It would be a day trip just to get there, turn around and drive home.

    I live pretty close and don't go there. It is a retirement destination for non-Texans and a tourist trap.

    If you are an actual Texan and retired and live in that town, wasn't meaning to be disrespectful but with all those foo-foo shops, boutiques and California style places, hard to make me comfy there.

    In all honesty I haven't been out that way in probably 15 years aside from just driving through. Basically like Gruene but bigger back then.

    We love Boerne, and go there quite often. It's a nice town, friendly folks, and I can't recall ever seeing the police in action during out visits.

    Sure, it's a tourist town; but that's because it has a lot to offer. If that steers some folks away, then good for them as I doubt anyone will notice. The place isn't hurting for visitors...

    I can't find anything about that in the penal code. Can you share where it is?
