NOTE: Speed scameras are ILLEGAL in Texas.
A private community’s efforts to stop speeding has some drivers seeing red.
While the HOA can’t fine nonresidents for speeding, it will share video of unsafe delivery drivers and workers with their employers, according to the Crystal Falls HOA website. Repeat offenders will be asked not to come back.
From 2007, TheNewspaper.com reports:
The Texas state House of Representatives today approved legislation banning speed cameras. State Representative Vicki Truitt (R-Southlake) introduced the measure to combat the cities of Marble Falls and Rhome which have begun using automated speed traps without the legislature’s authorization.
Update: KXAN reports:
The Crystal Falls Homeowners Association in Leander has put the brakes on a controversial plan to stop speeders, for now.
