Kearney, Nebraska Speed Traps
Along HWY 30 in the early morning hours 0500, when entering Wood River (WR) and leaving Alda (A) there is usually a police car hidden along the HWY somewhere in WR he is usually in the car lot and in A he is usually just after the city building. In shelton around 2100 to later he is along the HWY somewhere and will stop you for Anything over the posted limit. I work double shifts on the weekend so he always stops me to see if I have been drinking when I’m just coming home from work. (Hwy 30 Kearney to Grand Island)
I’ve noticed State, county, & local law enforcement sitting in the shadow of the monument, in the median about 90% of the time i pass through Kearney. I notice they like to use radar, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they use other things too. a radar detector will usually go off since the monument itself has 2 detectors in it, as part of one of their exhibits (last time I saw them up close was about 2-3 years ago). I have also seen them facing the flow of traffic, very close to the bases of the building on either side of the interstate. If you keep the speed of surrounding traffic, you’ll be fine.
