Columbia, Missouri Speed Traps
Have seen CPD hide behind a “for sale” sign just before the roundabout a few times.
During school days this section of road is closed to private through traffic. Campus Police strictly enforce this. They will sit right past the roadblock looking for people who violate the roadblock. I have seen campus PD allow people roll (or blow right through) a nearby stop sign in plain view of the roadblock so they can catch violators. During school days, motorists need to just avoid the campus at all costs to avoid being ticketed.
Good luck going 20 mph on this road…going down the hill I had my foot on the brake the whole time and had trouble keeping myself at 30 let alone 20. University Police will sit here looking for easy catches. Luckily I haven’t been pulled over but I know people who have.
Highway Patrol sits at the U-turns in this area all the time. Fortunately, they are pretty easy to see, but watch your speed on this stretch.
An officer dressed as a surveyor stands at the corner with radar and the sheriff is waiting in a driveway or side street ahead of you. Once you pass him he radios to the waiting sheriff your vehicle. There is also one waiting at the top of Starke by the fairgrounds once you turn on Starke. They are there sporadically but mainly toward the end of the month or the last day of the month
