While driving to South Padre Island, I drove through Los Fresnos. They must have had the entire police force out that day pulling over drivers. I was one of the drivers that got pulled over, but not for speeding. I was pulled over because my rental car had an expired inspection. Rather than issuing a warning, I was issued a ticket. So, it was on my record to clear up an inspection that has expired two days prior on a car that I didn't own.
I would like to know the amount of money this town gets from tickets vs. the overall budget of this town. If you are visiting South Padre Island, I would choose a route that doesn't go through this town. This town has a reputation of being a speed trap town and they live up to it.
