Just in time for National Zone Awareness Week, Barrell Bob was decimated by vandals. The picture above is Bob in better days.
The Transportation Development Foundation has declared this week to be Construction Zone Awareness Week.
Kansas City has seen an uptick of construction zones – likely due to stimulus money. One heinous zone lies on the way from downtown Kansas City to Independence on 70 Highway going East. It already rightly suffered the speed trap designation and the appearance of the construction barrells compound this reputation.
As an example of the costs associated with a construction zone ticket, Kansas City will amend a construction zone ticket for a whopping $438.50 fine. That does not include the attorney fee! The cops are targeting drivers along this way so speeder beware.
