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.

Military Road by Mormon Momument
If you display fear they will pull your car off the road and question you further while they run a check on you for outstanding warrants. I have asserted my rights to not be detained without probable cause and have been allowed to continue on without producing my papers.

Hwy 370 between Westridge and Betz Road
One time they gave out a little something to people who were using seatbelts.. I live on this highway, and it always backs up traffic so far that I can't get out of my driveway..
