US 40 east of Tapawingo Lane

Lake Tapawingo, MissouriMay 21, 20130 Comments

The Lake Tapawingo cop (they only have one) likes to harass motorists on US 40, usually on the eastbound side. He has a grey Dodge Charger and he usually parks in the entrance to Blue Springs Lake (on the south side of US 40), but I have also seen him parked in the driveway of the electrical substation that is a little bit east of there (south side), or next to the cars for sale at Asset Auto (north side). I see him more often at night. He may be working the westbound side during the day, but I don’t know that for sure.

Lake Tapawingo annexed this part of US 40 about a year ago, purely for revenue purposes. After they annexed it, they started enforcing a 45 MPH speed limit, even though it was posted for 55 MPH. Once this made the front page of the Kansas City Star, MoDOT came out and hung up a 55 MPH sign at the new city limits.
