New Bloomfield, Missouri Speed Traps
Holts Summit police have started patrolling New Bloomfield. They are patrolling Route J through town to supplement the money paid to them by New Bloomfield. Watch for a new speed trap by the New Bloomfield school this fall.
I was driving through New Bloomfield in the middle of the day on a Wednesday when I was pulled over. I asked the officer why I was pulled over and he claimed that I crossed the center line. He asked if I had been drinking and of course I hadn’t been….He decided to do the field sobriety check anyways and I failed due to the fact that I am 60 years old and have medical issues with my legs and knees!!! He called in the Highway patrol and everything!!! Once at the police station I blew “0” and was let go!!
The cops like to sit in the parking lot of the storage sheds, which I am sure is private property and is outside of city limit, and pull people over coming off the exit heading into New Bloomfield.
The cops like to sit in the driveway right by the city limit sign with their lights off and pull everyone over. Not sure how they get by with pulling people over “outside” of city limits but, unfortunately they do…….
Do not drive through this town!! You will be pulled over for anything and everything! The police department got a grant awarded to them to crack down on drunk driving. Several people are getting DWI’s driving through this town that should not have been pulled over in the first place. Guess they need to prove that the grant was needed.
