40hwy has seen a big increase in meth heads and prostitutes for the last several years, they hang out at the nasty motels. The black druggies have been trying to take over, independence and KCPD have down little to nothing to stop any of this. I feel bad for the poor lady that got run over but they walk out into traffic like zombies all the time. She isn’t the first to get hit over there and she won’t be the last, it’s getting pretty bad and yet the police don’t do anything to stop it
