Merriam Drive near Any Street

Merriam, KansasOct 19, 20060 Comments

I will try to explain this one. I have watched this happen. In this trap the traffic cop uses the dog catchers pickup as part of the scamm. The dog box will drive around at well below the posted speed limit. This traps drivers behind a very slow vehicle that they can not see around. The driver become impatient, just waiting for this a-hole to get out of the way.
When the dog truck turns off frustrated, impatient driver will punch it. Suprise! Suprise! Who is waiting just up the road. Right, Mr. Merriam Trafic Cop.

Merriam Drive near 47th Street

Merriam Drive is 4 lanes wide at this point, and seems to be safe at 45 mph. The speed limits change from 35 to 25 west of 47th St. with no apparent reason. The locals seem to really love to hide next to the liquor store on weekends, when traffic is light and enforcment is least needed.

Merriam Officers tend to sit on 64th Street and run laser/radar on vehicles coming north or southbound on Antioch. They also sit in the entryway to Antioch Park. The speed limit is 35 along this stretch. Yhey also sit blacked out, so it’s virtually impossible to see their cars.

Merriam PD Officers tend to sit on both sides of the intersection looking for violations. One officer will sit in the NW side of the intersection, in the Library parking lot, the other officer will sit in the SE side of the intersection, usually on Goodman St.

Merriam PD usually sits in the driveway of the construction site across from the Phillips 66 gas station on 67th St. The police presence is very thick between the hours of 5-7 AM. The officers tend to park at an angle, and you wont see them until it’s too late.
