This town is a trap form one end to the other. Almost all the locals have commented on getting some type of ticket in recent months. The town is trying to generate revenue, but before tried to control the fast moving trucks coming to town with cattle. Well---I got one of those tickets only one mile into the town. It is terrible and turned me off after finding out even the locals hate the police action. Trail St is the trap at 30 MPH winding down form 50 coming into town, but also Wyatt Earp Blvd at 20 MPH during construction can catch you unaware. They give tickets going only 5-7 MPH over the limit.
I have heard from friends who have visited Dodge City lately that there is now an elevated murder rate in this town - mostly due to turf warfare between rival ethnic groups in the city. This is hearsay only, but should serve as a warning for caution. Besides, little entertainment exists in Dodge for which you would want to stay up late at night or venture away from your motel.
