5 mins after leaving Colorado from hwy 76e to hwy 80e
After entering Nebraska, on 76e and then taking 80 to go east, like 5-10 mins after, there is a warning sign about dogs and a police checkpoint up ahead. Like others said, right after there's an exit ramp. It's a trap!!! There never was a road block but if you exited the cops are waiting for you. So make sure you fill up before leaving Colorado and entering Nebraska and DONT EXIT OR PANIC because they're waiting for you to slip up.

between sidney and north platte
Sorry for lack of detail, but it was near sidney, definately before north platte (which is a horrible place for corrupt illegal cops they will sneak around like peeping toms in hotel parking lots looking for out of state plates and harass you). It was the first one one ive seen but have heard plenty about them. There were yelliw/orange signs stating a state police drug checkpoint with a k9 unit up ahead, coincidentally followed shortly by an exit ramp. I had nothin to worry about so i proceeded along my way never to encounter a checkpoint. Then i remembered being told thats how they illegally trick people. So the idea is anybody with something to hide will take the exit ramp hoping to avoid the checkpoint, only to fall right into the illegal trap set by the police hidden off of the exit ramp. This was on 3/5/16.

Between north platte & lexington. Sorry No exit #.
You will find this k9 checkpoint as you are heading eastbound. There is no reason to stop here as there are not any services. I can only surmise that this is one of 2 things, either a complete shut down of 80 eastbound to search every vehicle or a scare tactic. I did not stop & get off nor did anyone else. This was taking place around the noon hour on January 21, 2016.

Same story, 4-6 signs about dogs/roadblock ahead; next exit....I didn't use my left turn signal,I had made a right turn!! On my way to, and in jail all the cops told me they do it all the time and even they don't necessarily agree with the tactics they're using

Q Street off ramp @ I-80 westbound (near 118th Street)
This occurs mostly before noon, once or twice per month. While a motorist is driving south/westbound on I-80 on the I, L, Q Street Exits access road (50 MPH Speed Limit), policeman A sets up atop the Q Street viaduct that crosses Interstate 80, directly above the access road, radar-ing all motorists passing underneath. The motorists who choose to take the Q Street off ramp do so, loop around the ramp only to find officer B, a DIFFERENT officer than the one who detected you on radar, flagging you down a few yard shy of the off ramp-Q St. intersection. A very sneaky, shady and highly QUESTIONABLE method of extracting the, up until now, honestly earned money of the citizens. They're OMAHA Police, so turn on your camera in case they BEAT THE S*** out of you for no reason, or even MURDER you for reaching toward the release button on your SEAT BELT (both have happened)....(Don't expect any REPERCUSSIONS outside of a paid vacation to be levied against the offending officer in this type of occurrence) Of course, they will probably just STEAL your camera if they notice it, anyway. At least that seems to be their Standard Operating Procedure, judging by certain YouTube videos.

I-80 approximately 20 miles east of Grand Island
Large signs shortly before the checkpoint announcing "Drug Checkpoint Ahead" and "Drug Dog in Use Ahead." The actual checkpoint is not on 1-80 itself, but at the exit right after the signs. The officers probably expect that anyone carrying drugs will quickly try to exit to avoid a checkpoint, so the checkpoint is located at the exit, out of sight of the highway.
Of course I wasn't carrying any drugs, so I wasn't worried about proceeding on I-80, but when no checkpoint appeared, I realized it had to be at the only exit shortly after the signs. I wonder what the locals out in the remote Nebraska countryside think about getting stopped by the state troopers all day and searched for drugs when they take the only ramp from the highway to town.
