Rawlins, Wyoming Speed Traps
Rawlins police officers (not highway patrol) will run radar on I-80 between exits 211 and exit 215. They will write anyone exceeding the speed limit to raise revenue for their city. They know most people will not come back to fight the ticket.
If you have out of state or out of area license plates, the law enforcement in this city will meticulously attempt every means to get you for any infraction in order to raise revenue for their city. This is on I-80, so avoid even getting off to enter this city.
S/B on 287 coming into town sudden sign 45mph, police radar within 1/2 block, No sign indicating “reduced speed ahead” etc. prior to 45 sign, while reducing from 65, radar at 58. Ticket for speeding. No traffic. No other cars. Obviously no traffic safety issues, just a fund raiser paid for by a car w/Calif plates. I suspect Public records would show pattern of tickets but no collisions or other safety concerns calling for enforcement at that location. He wasn’t there to save lives, he was there to fatten the citys income!
