On 54 through Meade, Kansas
Apparent 25 mile school zone on 54 through Meade, Kansas. Traveling early morning 7:45 a.m. rainy foggy day behind red truck on 54 in what I thought was a 35 mile zone. Traveling safely behind red truck when officer did U turn and put on lights. I pull over behind red truck and officer pulls up behind me. Red truck leaves leaving me to deal with Meade officer. Officer says I was going 41 in 25 mile school zone and gave me $270 ticket. This is my first speeding ticket in my whole 44 years of driving. Apparently they do not believe in giving someone not familiar with their speed traps and good record a warning. I don’t even know for sure it was me that his radar clocked at 41. It could have been the red truck who lucked out and left. After checking Meade’s map the school is 4 blocks off 54 so not sure where the 25 mph sign is on 54. Maybe this is Meade’s way of getting income from out of towners.
