Numerous police are nailing every car they can, going over the posted (flashing-yellow) 20 mph.
I didn’t see any cops until way west of IH35 and almost to Lamar, when one appeared behind me. Then I saw them swarming like wasps over ‘perps’ in parking lots at Lamar and Rundberg. It was a blood-bath.
My cop was in such a hurry to get to the next victim, he didn’t ask typical questions like ‘Do you know how fast you were going’?
Reduces from 65mph to 40mph while heading downhill. No businesses, homes, crosswalks or lights in area where speed drops. Cops wait at bottom of the hill and take radar reading from up on the hill.
