Olathe, Kansas Speed Traps
Cops wait for you to come down the hill, and they are extremely active during school zone hours…however both another car and I advised the school zone light wasn’t flashing. They seem to be active at the end of the month…
Over the last few weeks, I’ve seen a constant speed trap for motorists on W. Bound Sante Fe & Murlen. As you come down the hill by Kohl’s and Price Chopper, you cannot see the police hiding in the parking lot between Taco Bell and Commerce Bank as that parking lot is in a perimeter of tall bushes. Get ready to slam on your brakes as it drops from 45mph to 35 on a long down-hill stretch. The City of Olathe funded the 1200 S Harrison Courthouse on their traffic ticket revenue stream, and have no intentions of letting up the pressure on their own citizens.
Santa is a cop with a radar gun with about 7 cars/motorcycles to back him up. What a message for the City of Olathe to send to their citizens. Merry Christmas from the City of Olathe to is citizens.
About a mile east of Mur-Len, police sit in the south side parking lot to the public swimming pool/park. They radar cars going both east and west on 127th with excellent visibility in either direction.
I am aware they are their and have not been ticketed, but i see someone pulled over every week. Extra caution when time for locoal schools to let out.
When the posted speeds drop by 10 mph and then by another 10 mph, pay careful attention….as those who don’t are doomed to be victims. It is very easy to miss a sign and it is even easier for Olathe police to consume their prey. I’ve only noticed the southbound trap (as you are supposed to be decreasing speed), however if you are speeding out of town….be aware.
