A Little Texas Levity

Texas Law Enforcement*


A Richardson, TX policeman had a perfect spot to watch for speeders but wasn't getting much "business". Then he discovered the problem - a 12-year-old boy was standing up the road with a hand painted sign which read, "RADAR TRAP AHEAD". The officer then discovered a young accomplice down the road with a sign reading "TIPS" and a bucketful 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, TX. A $40 speeding ticket was enclosed. Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $40. The police responded with another mailed photo of handcuffs.


A young woman was pulled over for speeding. As the TX State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book, she smiled and said "I bet you're going to sell me a ticket to the Texas State Police Ball."

He replied, "Texas State Troopers don't have balls."

There hung a moment of silence while she smiled and he realized just what
he'd said. He closed his ticket book, got back into his patrol car and drove off.

She was laughing too hard to start her car.
