RV Legal Limits in Texas

One important note about Texas for those that are non-residents. Don’t speed, I know there are public service signs everywhere that say “Don’t Slow Texas Down”, but should I ever enter this state again, I will slow Texas down!  I was traveling down a highway entering a town, they had the speed sign behind a construction sign and a cop behind the speed sign. Something right out of the Dukes of Hazzard movie. Unbelievable! I rolled into town doing 9mph over the 35 miles per hour required. The nice little police lady had no pleasantries nor professional courtesies for us that day. I asked her where to pay the ticket and her reply was you figure it out. Since she was in such a Jolly mood I thanked for her time and went back to RV, then googled the county seat and worked my way back from them there. The ticket was $300 plus a $200 court fee, plus sales tax, and recorded as a criminal misdemeanor! Come on, where we are from that is an infraction that only means something to your insurance company for a few years. I was also told by the clerk that if your state requires a special license such as a CDL Texas would pull your CDL on the spot, meaning no license. She also said if I had been doing one more Mile Per Hour she would have placed me in jail until all the money was paid. Texas residents have their records cleared if they get no other tickets for nine months. I want to visit my relatives who are in Texas again, but I might just hire a driver!

Description:

Lake Whitney is in great condition over all. We did not photograph the mini golf as it is buried in the snow right now. Loop D has great internet reception in the sites closest to the main road. Rumor has it, internet is good in the B loop as well. All the sites are in great condition, though some of the electrical boxes are suspect. As far as electrical is concerned, we took a 30A site and it was more than adequate for our needs. The Laundry is 1 mile from loop D, today we drove 8 miles just going to the laundry and back. Everything in this park is so far apart, one can get his cardio in if he chooses to walk from point to point.  Most of the buildings were closed for the winter, but the members are doing some activities on their own in the Family center. Visit Fort Worth Stock yards from here. Campground loop roads are in good condition
