      Roads here are not much better than nyc

      Pretty much non existent in comparison to the north east for a euro "scene".

      Houston cars and coffee is pretty cool though.

      check out europeanag.com. the vortex in the south is super slow!!!!! eag is a local euro forum in the greater houston area. i hail from the northwest and the scene is definitely slower here in texas then either coast. more people into trucks and muscle cars here.

      houston and austin are ranked in the TOP Ten for cities with Red Light Camera's. Get the Escort Passport 9500ix, it warns you of red light cameras, speed cameras, speed trap zone and cops with both radar and/or laser equipment.

      Roads are fine, people drive fast. Get protection!
      I had the 8500 now the 9500, ain't seen a ticket in 9 years.
      All my friends without detectors have MULTIPLE tickets.

      Ok. Dag. Houston is known for trucks tho. Up here is a mix. But ricers are mostly dominant in the tri state! Cops mess w us, and I feel like I'm on a terrain everytime I drive!

      Houston got rid of red lite cameras, before your post, I believe.
