I-35N just before Shawnee Mission Pkwy
Officer was sitting with lights off at night on shoulder of I35 North on January 31, 2010. Merriam traps you because they lowered the speed limit in the section of I-35 within their city limits by 5 or 10 MPH. Also brake/slow your vehicle so you don’t go even faster down the decline/underpass under SMP. Was ticketed for 78 in a 60 and officer was def. looking for a DUI from me too but I was fine and passed the ‘follow the light pen’ and ‘walk the line’ sobriety checks. Merriam is however a city that you do not need an attorney to handle a ticket modification/amendment request to have it fixed or amended to a non-moving violation. You may request that directly of the city prosecutor.
