Enter Austin At Your Own Risk

Two billboards warning drivers to enter Austin at their own risk after the city reduced its police department budget were put up by the Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) this week. One sign reads “Warning!!! Austin Police Defunded Enter at Your Own Risk” and  the other says “Limited Support Next 20 Miles.” TMPA stated that it put up the billboards to raise awareness that the city’s police department  is “defunded” and slammed the move by stating that “This reckless act, a political stunt by the city council pandering to the radical left, will do nothing but endanger the people of Austin.”
