Linn Valley, Kansas Speed Traps
A white Dodge sits on the over pass often. I think the state lets them patrol 100′ or so of US 69. What’s their interest on a road that doesn’t even connect to Lynn Valley? Guess!
Ullery Road is the only access into the gated Linn Valley community. About a mile south of the entrance, the speed limit drops abruptly from 55 to 40, not the 45 that is normal in the area. There is a sign advising reduced speed ahead, but the 40 limit begins at the crest of a long downslope and visibility of the speed limit sign is low. There is no construction or anything else along this rural stretch to justify such a low limit; it is open country. A police cruiser regularly sits on the shoulder well down the slope and monitors the crest of the hill. Some residents have commented on what appears to be an inordinately large police force for such a small community.
