Hutchinson, Kansas Speed Traps
Northbound on 61 the speed goes from 55 to 45 at Ave G. Police sit off the side of the offramp for Ave A. You are going up to go over an overpass with a slight curve and they are hard to spot, many are stil going 55. Southbound police will sit just off the highway on Ave G hidden by trees, people speed up early coming down the hill from 45 to 55.
for 50+ years police have parked just South of 11th on Cleveland, facing to the North, clocking BOTH east-west directions on 11th with combination of stop watch and/or radar. 30MPH speed zone here.
Heading north, the speed limit is 20mph, goes to 30 right by Wendy’s. They catch people that are speeding up to 30, right before the sign.
Very poorly marked school zone–no large flashing double yellow lights as in neighboring towns. The signs are the same size as no parking signs—on a 45 mph street.
When I told the officer I didn’t even know I was in a school zone he laughed, and said—yea thats what a lot of people tell me—my boss tells me to come down here and write these tickets and that’s what I Do! The ticket was $100.00 for 32mph in a 20mph school zone
It’s not uncommon to see officers here anytime of the day hidden from oncoming traffic
