Sikeston, Missouri Speed Traps
The police heavily patrol this stretch of Highway 60 just west of Interstate 55. Interstate 57 ends at I-55 and becomes Highway 60 as soon as you cross I-55 going westbound. The speed limit decreases as well. Some drivers forget they are no longer on the Interstate so the police are ready to write a ticket if you are still driving at Interstate speed.
Entering Sikeston on Ingram, Southbound, approaching Kennedy. The speed limit drops from 45 to 35. But the sign is attached to a large diameter, light-colored street lamp pole . . . making it blend-in and hard to notice. I’ve never seen a speed limit sign that wasn’t displayed on a 4×4 wood post. I was stopped doing 48 in a 35 because I thought I was still in a 45 zone. Officer Malone understood and let me off with a warning . . . Thanks !
Sikeston DPS runs a speed trap by sitting in an open stretch of road where the speed limit is 35 MPH.
Speed trap set up where the police sit at the Fire Station and shoot down the road catching people getting off work.
There is a school zone in the middle of a long road. The police set up in the Church parking lot and pick on you for no reason.
