US Highway 71 near Gering Bypass
Comming into Gering on Highway 71 from the south is a new Bypass that detours around town. The speed limit drops at the change to the bypass but the road and conditions do not change. There are several large approach ramps for the numerous over and underpasses and the local police as well as the smokies love to hide their cars behind them. They often use Lasers out the window of the car and because of the way they are positioned your radar detector won’t go off until it is too late. I have a VERY good radar detector that did go off but only after I no longer had time to slow down. What’s worse is because the construction is new, the cops seem to have made this their new playground and even though the construction is done, the construction zone signs are still up and your ticket will be doubled.
