Inbetween Leasburg and Bourbon

Bourbon, MissouriNov 05, 20100 Comments

I’ve looked at all the other Bourbon Speed Traps, seems unclear, so I wanted to clarify:

ON Hwy 44 – Not only the Bourbon Police sit on the side of the highway in both directions, but the Missouri Highway Patrol also sit there. Normally, they sit up over the first hill from Leasburg heading Eastbound. It’s right up over a hill and you don’t see them until you’re right on them. They also sit on the Westbound side sometimes. It’s best to slow to the speedlimit at the Bourbon Exit if heading Westbound and slow at the Leasburg Exit if heading Eastbound. This is no joke! They’ll get you lol.

A little history on this speed trap:

The Bourbon Police used to sit there and were only supposed to give tickets out if the traveler was over about 80 miles per hour. But they got such as great response from the massive amount of tickets issued, that the State Patrol basically chased off the city cops and took up those spots due to the massive amount of revenue it generates.
