14th Ave. S.E. has had the speed limit lowered to 35 from 55. With the new housing going in people are not adhering to the new limit. So when radar is run it is non stop ticket writing, usually for 20 over plus!

Police sit north of the T-intersection in a fairly stealthy position where they are able to radar in three different directions. Adventureland Drive in general, is often patrolled particularly on the eastern end. The eastern edge is patrolled more at night. The intersection listed above can be any time of day.
