Lee's Summit, Missouri Speed Traps
Especially mid month and month end: Lee’s Summit, MO police dept has a radar car parked on the West shoulder between I-470 and Colbert Rd. They are only looking for cars going straight, not getting onto I-470. As you are coming down the hill past Chipman Rd, the cop car is looking for anyone above the speed limit, 60 mph. This is also a double fine zone. It is almost impossible to see the cop car, until you have gone under the interstate. I have no way of knowing the money collected, but it is MUCH more during these times. I worked in Lee’s Summit for 15 years, and the COP cars started showing up about the last 7 years.
The new construction going on at 3rd street by the college with the new speed limit of 35mph has cops hiding out behind construction equipment in order to catch speeders.
LSPD likes to hang out around LS West High School taking radar of kids getting out of school. LSPD is quite often, almost daily.
The part of Todd George Road behind Deerbrook North homes towards Colbern Road. LSPD is often standing in the median with radar and the cop cars are on the side streets ready to roll when they are hungry for tickets. Be careful especially around school times in the morning or afternoons.
Three policemen working the site. Radar detectors won’t work on this one!
