It's a dangerous intersection where police say people often ignore the speed limit changes.
“The intersection is coming over a hill, and the speed changes rapidly from 55 to 45 to 35 mph,” says Captain Rick Edwards of Stanford Police.
Captain Edwards was set up at the intersection of 78 and 27 in Stanford Monday afternoon. He was looking for speeders.
Police were pulling over speeders because they say crashes that occur there can quickly send people to the hospital..or worse.
“It’s pretty common to see people going 60 miles per hour and the problem with that, they're coming over the hill. If someone pulls out in front of them, there's no way they can stop.”
Police are taking advantage of federal overtime money to step up patrols. Lincoln County is targeted this week because of the 10 people killed in crashes since January.
