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 Hazard 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!

Medina Lake is a very nice park, it would get a 10 out of 10 if the pool was heated, and the marina was replaced. The activity director is very nice, works very hard, and I doubt knows what time off work means. There are deer everywhere, it is hard to get a photo without a deer. Large grocery stores are at least a half an hour away, about the only thing one can buy local is fuel and for some reason, it is priced better than in the neighboring city of San Antonio. The Hwy 37 is windy and steep, about 11 miles long, the RV hated the drive in and kept ejecting drawers and the like as we rounded corners. We did not exceed 30 mph the entire way. We drove 3 other routes in from the main highway, and the route 37 recommended by the park, really is the best. Once settled in the park it is worth the effort, it is in good repair over all, lots of activities, and quiet.
