Can't avoid Kansas since I have to go all the way across the state to get to my destination. I have seen those signs before out in Kansas and never worried about them and have decided to not worry about them again. It was just an interesting conversation at work.

They used to do that in Tennessee between Knoxville and Chattanooga on I-75. They would put a sign on the highway about a mile before an exit where there was no services that said "Drug Checkpoint 5 miles ahead". Then they would park just off the exit and check the car/trucks that got off there figuring that someone was trying to avoid the check. There was no drug checkpoint 5 miles ahead but there was at that exit. I have seen that sign numerous times, I don't know if they still do it or not, since I have retired I'm not out on the highway very much anymore. I have over 4.5 million miles under my belt and there isn't much I haven't seen.

That was meant as a joke Anyway as long as we aren't doing anything wrong who cares what the Police are doing.

mike.t--I love the car in your avatar picture. It is small enough I can't quite tell what year it is. We had a 57 Chevy for many years--hence the handle for this forum.

I passed them too without ever seeing a checkpoint. I wondered if they were watching the u-turners...

You betcha and those that went through the median also. They figured that unless you lived locally there was no reason to get off at that exit, unless of course you didn't want to get caught. The troopers have a profile of suspect vehicles carrying drugs, one trooper here in Georgia got killed several years ago doing a drug stop, and he was one of the best ones at catching them on I-20 just west of Villa Rica, he just let his guard down.

I wonder if the LEOs have air surveillance to watch for stoners throwing their stash out of car windows?

Could make for some great YouTube videos.
