Watch your speed. Know the speed limit.


Trust someone who was recently "popped" for speeding, I can tell you honestly, I had no idea how easy it was to travel faster than the posted limit. After an expensive ticket was issued to me, I've learned. Officers are watching.

Where will Kennewick Police Officers be patrolling?


This week speed emphasis patrols are being conducted in the areas of West 7th Avenue, Canyon Lakes Drive, West 10th Avenue, and Steptoe Street, just to name a few.

According to a Kennewick Police Department Facebook post:

Say "Hi" if you see us out there . . . and don't forget to buckle up!

I was running late. I thought I'd travel the Bypass Highway to save time. Well, the limit is 55 mph. I was "going with traffic", maybe a little faster. My mistake.


Come to find out, I was traveling well over the posted 55 mph limit. Needless to say, I was pulled over, issued a citation, and was LATE to work. Trust me. It's not worth the aggravation. Lesson learned. Obey the speed limit.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
