Junction City, Kansas Speed Traps
Four-lane highway is posted at 40 mph. No tolerance for out-of-town tourists.
2 mile section of Route 40 (four lane highway) that is restricted to 40 mph. Most travelers would assume 55 mph would be the norm. Cops prey on tourists to get out-of-town dollars ($52 fine and $98 court costs). Court dates are always set far enough down the calendar that tourists cannot defend themselves in court. A warning ticket would suffice, but cops enforce a “no-tolerance” rule.
Near WAlmart, fast food row.
The new section of Rucker Road (from 77 to 8th St) has a 30 mph speed limit and a large hill. The cops sit at the bottom of the hill, usually in the driveways of the trailers or even on Westwood.
The intersection of 77 and old 77 (road leading to Estes gate of Ft Riley) has a gravel access road across the street from the intersection. County cops pull up onto the gravel road and can gun cars in both directions.
