La Junta, Colorado Speed Traps
La Junta, always has a bunch of newbies on the force trying to make a big impression on their boss, thus..lots of speeding tickets Watch your step on Hy 50 thru La Junta
Hwy 50 is 4 lane from Fowler to about 7 miles East of La Junta. The speed limit is 65mph except for the stretch between La Junta and Swink, where it is dropped to 60mph. So people mistakingly think that the speed stays the same on both sides of town. This area is heavily patroled.
The La Junta police department uses an ungodly amount of patrol officers and cars, more so then dictated by population. There is also an alarming number of unmarked patrol cars. This is not to mention the Colorado State Patrol,which has a constant presence of atleast three patrols in the area. So watch out!!!!!
