US Highway 295 North/South near Exit Number 40062
As the highway is set up with access to both North and South routes (to police and authorized vehicles only) on any given day, but mostly on mornings and evenings (rush hours and just before and after) there are state cops, Smithfield Cops, and Lincoln Cops. They hide behind bushes and in Lulls. I have also seen them pulled over in the breakdown lane in unmarked cars..
