One Town, One Road, Two days, Nearly 200 Traffic Tickets!

They told you it was coming!  Many newspapers wrote articles like the link below from the Lawrence Journal World,  warning people that cops were out looking.  Over the thanksgiving holiday, the police were out in force looking for speeders.  To say they found some would be an understatement.  Hundreds and hundred of tickets were given out this last week with the increase in police looking for speeders.
