Speed Zapper: 125th & Miami

If Speed Zapper reports have taught us anything it's that speeders can be found anywhere.

An email from a seemingly quiet, west Omaha neighborhood reinforced that point this week. A man said he finds speeders all the time, despite speed bumps and narrow streets.

Our WOWT 6 News Speed Zapper crew set up shop near the intersection of 125th Avenue and Miami. Traffic was light during a weekday morning, but it took only 15 minutes to find someone driving nine miles per hour over the 25 mile per hour speed limit.

The driver stopped when he was waived down. He admitted he was speeding, but said he works picking up pet waste and was trying to beat the snow that was in the forecast. He promised to slow down and even gave our crew a tip about an area in Fremont.

A handful of people sped through the area over the next hour, but our Speed Zapper crew found even more people rolling through stop signs. Those folks were only caught on camera, but if you do it in front of an Omaha Police officer it could cost you. An officer told WOWT 6 News it's a $75 fine.
