Texas Department of Transportation Lowers Speed Limit
Avoid A Speeding Ticket in Houston
The Texas Department of Transportation is installing new signs on Highway 290 today to lower the speed limit on stretches of the highway. The speed limit changes stretch all the way through to Hayes County. The speed limit will only drop by 5 mph, in the stretch between Nutty Brown Road and Rob Shelton Boulevard; going from 65 mph to only 60 mph. Small changes in the speed limit like this one can lead to a rise in speeding tickets in Houston and traffic violations.
Doubtless, after signs are installed the Houston police and the highway patrols will be staking out and waiting for individuals to pass by so that they can catch these drivers allowing them to issue a speeding ticket for driving at the previously mandated pace. If you have been charged with a speeding ticket in Houston in a place with a recent change, then you may want to contest your ticket. In some cases, you may need to hire an attorney to help you with this.
