    I hope they choke on more than the money. They are a sneaky group of popo in Morrison.

    Fuck yea they are, I got one of those fucks fired for lying and sticking me with a ticket I wasn't supposed to get. Clown ass bitch, those guys out there are nothing but revenue leaches, it's sickening. More than 80% of the time you always see them do nothing but speed traps, I'm glad they uncovered this shit. As far as CSP I'm not sure but I'm sure Aaron will chime in.

    I have my $40 Cobra from HS and still saves my ass every now and again. I've just learned all the hot spots in the areas I frequent so just watch myself, can't justify $600+ on a cop radar.

    Re: Learn how much Morrison makes off us each year TICKET SEASON ahoy

    Yea, just to play devil's advocate here... With as many awesome roads as there are in the front range, why speed through Morrison, and/or why ride through Morrison? It is home to the Red Rocks, so, I'm sure the Cops see all kinds of stupid and crazy things with the concerts...

    No, I'm not trying to defend the cops. I'm actually not picking sides, just highlighting the other side. Ideas on how to combat this? Do we organize a "protest ride", lol. Do we make an active effort to not ride in Morrison and keep other motorcyclists out of it? I guess, it's easy flap yer jaw on the nets.... I'm asking what you gonna do about it?

    I recall from when I was living in CO that Morrison was like a hot spot for motorcyclists to stop. Every weekend that place was packed with bikes. I don't imagine that has changed.

    While I hate speed traps and revenue generating laws going 15mph over will get you a ticket anywhere. Morrison seems pretty lenient with their policy and still are writing plenty of tickets.

    Nothing we can do, government will do as they please and I'm sure this news deal won't stop anything. I'm sure just like it happened to me they'll just start making up bullshit to give out tickets though people will watch themselves even more in that area. Morrison is full of crooked ass lying cops.

    Just cruisers mainly, sport bikers are vaginas in this state and don't come out anymore. The first weekend I got my new ride I was the only sport bike for over an hour at MoCo (blood sugar dropped pretty good so had to stuff my face in and wait it out so I could start riding)... some sad shit that people don't get out to ride. I remember the good ol' days when rides were posted weekly, had some great groups and it was a fun weekend. This place has gone dead for sure and it sucks.

    Bugkiller (old member) and I once got tickets for stunting from a Morrison cop because we were going side to side warming up the side of our tires.

    Yeah we ought to protest... start a riot, loot, and burn some shit.

    What.. too soon?

    So they make their revenue from speeding tickets. Know what? If more folks can control their throttle through town it hits them directly where they hurt. Fewer tickets mean they'll have to make their money another way.

    Def a cash cow for Morrison at that location. Speed limit is 45 (kinda low for 4 lane divided hwy), and the curves naturally slow traffic.

    Re: Learn how much Morrison makes off us each year TICKET SEASON ahoy

    A lot of people commenting here are under the impression these tickets are being written in old-town Morrison proper (where all the bars are and cruisers hang out). While I'm sure they write some there too, their big money maker and the focus of the 9news investigation was where they park on 285 and snag people. As said above, that's a wide, 4 lane, gently curved road with a artificially low 45 mph speed limit. There's a couple mile stretch of 285 that falls in Town of Morrison's jurisdiction and they milk it big time. The road doesn't go to or from or through Morrison, but they recognize it as a money maker and park there constantly. I was one of the people unfortunate enough to be forced to make a contribution to the City's coffers last summer. I will say the cop that pulled me over was very nice, and gave me a pretty good break on the ticket, but it's still BS what they're doing. Has absolutely nothing to do with safety and everything to do with revenue generation. By CDOT's own guidelines, speed limits should be set so that 85% of the people are doing the speed limit or under. (Read all about that here https://www.codot.gov/library/Brochu...s_Brochure.pdf ) There's no way 85% of the people are doing 45 or under, which means it's artificially low.

    Re: Learn how much Morrison makes off us each year TICKET SEASON ahoy

    True, but the speed limit there is fairly reasonably set. From Moco thru town I keep it at the speed limit and it feels fairly close to appropriate. Now just west of town is another story, I'll grant you that. There's another artificially low section.

    Yeah you couldnt be more wrong. If you look at the amount of tickets and location the cash cow is where morrison road and c470 bridge to 1 mile outside of the last Red rocks entrance. Ive lived in this area for 30 years. the, number 2 spot and most unmarked patrol is from alameda to 3miles south of morrison road on c470. the two most common trapped area in the town limits of morrison is by the gas station and red rocks west rear entrance or 2nd entrance. 285 where they do trap on the back side of bear creek park gets 1/2 the ticket revenue from c470 bear creek road to alameda both area's fall under the Jeffco S. and HSP patrol and not Morrison Police who do not have the Patrol cars to monitor or patrol the area. The city of Lakewood even had to step in and slow the amount of traps run in front of bearcreek park entrance which use to be done more often for part is Under morrison control and part under lakewood and even the state patrol would trap run into a gray area of who could and couldn't. 50 to 35 MPH zone in less then 1 mile they use rake the cash in
