In Ludiwici, Georgia. They at least hide there.

For Point Beach it would be the whole city of Two Rivers. I've witnessed a plain clothes cop, on foot, with no police vehicle in sight, hiding behind a mailbox, with a radargun in one hand and a walkie talkie in the other. A way down the street at the edge of town, four squad cars have four drivers stopped.

Management has been known to request county cops to focus extra speed enforcement during outage and write more tickets for workers on their way to work.

For the Kewaunee Plant, during outage shift changes you can count on a state trooper sitting in the driveway of the "School Forest" just south of the plant. The county cop will be rolling up and down Hwy 42 north of the plant. He likes to use instant on radar, I think that's what it's called. He waits until the last moment then zaps you with the radar. Your speed is locked on before you know what happened. A radar detector can't warn you in time unless you can detect him zapping the cars ahead of you. Most of the other cops in the area just sit with the radar on constantly and can easily be detected long before you see them.

For those of you coming to Port St. Lucie for the spring outage they have a construction zone set up north of the plant on A1A.  The PSL county police are really taking advantage of the situation to fill the county coffers.  It is about 8 miles long and 35 miles per hour which is next to impossible to do for anyone who is used to doing 55 in this zone.

The construction zone south of the plant runs about one mile and doesn't seem to be as heavily enforced.

Same cop is still on duty there, especially during outages!

Years ago there was a Lower Alloways Creek Township (no kidding) cop on the access road to Salem that stopped me two outages in a row... I had to spell 'Alfa Romeo' for him both times. I understand they still go trolling there.

Vermont Yankee was bad back in 2005.... I even got pulled over after slamming on my brakes with a cop tailgating me..

After being yelled at as to my sudden stop I asked "Didn't you see that cat in the road?   You want me to kill someone's pet?"

I have not been touched since.
