Officer stands on north end of viaduct on sidewald with handheld laser tracking northbound traffic only. Very spontaneous, but when they are there, they are strict with the 35 m.p.h. limit. Generally only during the week, in the mornings.

It isnt every day, maybe a couple times a month but a cop stands in the trees in the corner of Graceland Cemetary and clocks people… then there is a line of squad cars the next block up waiting to pull people over. It’s usually between 7:30-8:15 to get MacArthur High School students on their way to school.
