Columnist O.K. Carter reports that the mid city has been given a "dishonorable mention" by the National Motorists Association in its annual speed-trap list.
The NMA prepares the list every year, typically releasing it right before Thanksgiving.
"Nothing can ruin a vacation more quickly than an undeserved speeding ticket," the NMA's November news release on the speed-trap topic says.
The list, O.K. reports, is put together from complaints made by visitors to the city. There is, after all, two interstates and Texas 360 (pictured above) going through town.
But O.K. suggests this disclaimer: ''Doesn't it seem logical that cities with a lot of visitors and through traffic on interstates would be writing more traffic citations?''
