I live in Verndale and the cops are busy folks here. The county sheriff also lives here, and so with all the comings and goings of county cruisers between Verndale and the county seat of Wadena (six miles away), actually the entire stretch of hwy 10 between Verndale and Wadena is a bad place to go more than 5mph over the limit. The speed zone for Verndale is posted with a normal amount of signage, but it’s on a bland stretch of 4-lane and a lot of people make the mistake of not thinking it important to slow down for the half-mile or so stretch that goes through this tiny town. It is important, because pedestrians are always crossing the hwy, and because the county uses the situation to provide a nice revenue stream for an otherwise poor county. They don’t seem to issue any warnings here. There’s usually somebody pulled over, and often a second or third cruiser in the area. Slow it down through here!

I read in the first post for this trap that "they are really good". Yes they are, however, it is not big trap because they are really good it is because they are young cops. Verndale and Motley are a couple of the towns that take young/new law enforcement graduates and from what I have been told, they also train them there (mainly coming out of the Alexandria school). So all these young cops are looking to do "a good job" and probably make a name for themselves.
