El Mio Speed Trap

In the town of Farmer’s Branch, just outside of Dallas, Texas, there is a motel called El Mio on the west side of I-35E.  Farmer’s Branch is just beside the town of Carrollton.

On Friday, November 18th, the author saw four cars get pulled over within the span of an hour at the motel. It was between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m.  Below are the videos.  The first vehicle pulled over was a red moving van.

This video shows the second car, a white SUV.

On this tape, the policeman pulled over the third vehicle, a white sedan.

In this video, the police pulled over a red Hyundai.

Later, the author (me) was at the El Mio Motel at night when he saw two police cars that had stopped someone. That was on November 23. The speed limit in front of the El Mio is 35 m.p.h., but on most service roads in the area it is 50 m.p.h.

  1. My first college girlfriend was from Farmers Branch (note that there is no apostrophe in the city’s name). On my very first trip to Farmers Branch, I got a ticket. Guess where? I can’t believe that is still a speed trap 41 years later! They must make a lot of money right there.
