In Richardson , a Texas State Trooper was running
radar. He had a perfect spot to watch for speeders,
but he wasn't getting many. Then he discovered the
problem. A 12-year-old boy was standing up the road
with a hand-painted sign that read 'RADAR TRAP AHEAD!'
The officer then found the boy's young accomplice down
the road with a sign reading, 'TIPS' and a bucket full
of money. (And we used to just sell lemonade!)
A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding
through an automated radar post in Plano, Texas . A $40
speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he sent the
police department a picture of $40. The police
responded through the mail with a photo of handcuffs.
A young woman was pulled over for speeding. As the
Texas State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping
open his ticket book, she said, 'I'll bet you are
going to sell me a ticket to the Texas State Police
Ball' He replied, ' Texas State Troopers don't have
balls.' There was a moment of silence while she smiled
and he realized what he'd just said.
He then closed his book, got back in his patrol car
and left. She was laughing too hard to start her car.
