    Almost the same thing happened to me in Starr County. I was going 70 in a 65. Apparently, all Highways are 65 in Starr County. Anyway, after I handed over my DL and LTC, I said, "by the way, I am armed". The DPS officer asked, "without reaching, where is it?" I replied, "one on my hip, one in my pocket, one in the glovebox, and one in my bag on the back seat." He laugh and asked if I was a lawyer. I said, "no, I am a surveyor." He smiled then said, "well that figures".

    After some small talk, he let me off with a warning.

    Stopped for 5 miles over the speed limit. That is petty.

    Not really. DPS' tolerance is generally 9 over for speed limits up to 65, then it reduces to 5 over.

    Somehow we, as drivers, have come to think of speed LIMITS, as the minimum one must drive.

    I drive up to 35,000 miles per year because I’m in outside sales. I find it easier to just drive the speed limit. I don’t worry about getting pulled over and it’s easier on my blood pressure to just drive safely and defensively.

    Speeding doesn’t save a significant amount of time and the risk of an accident or ticket isn’t worth it.

    Thank you! I do the same, no matter what speed. People get too defensive and try to play blocker, and all it does is cause problems. So much easier to just be polite.

    DPS troops, working drug interdiction along the border, have occasionally been accused of being a little over-exuberant when it comes to generating probable cause to pull somebody over & check for dope.
