Sorry to sound so alarmist, but those traveling to Lawrence and Clinton Lake State Park from the south (Hwy. 59, shortcut through Ottawa from I-35) must be careful not to drive ONE mile over the speed limit and ALWAYS wear your seatbelts.
The State Police and locals too have been conducting the stupid \"Click-it-or-ticket\" campaign for WEEKS now, and I see about four cars pulled over each day (sometimes at the same time) in front of my house on Hwy. 59 south of Lawrence.
The cops are being sneaky, too, using unmarked Blazers parked on the side of the road with a deputy inside aiming a radar gun at everyone who passes. Then he radios the info to his cohorts down the road and BANG, you get stopped WAY after you got hit with radar.
Bottom line: drive the speed limit on Hwy. 59 and wear your seatbelt.
Don't give the cops a reason to ruin your weekend!
Have fun, drive safely and be warned!
