I make this trip twice a week; rain, sun, or snow and haven't seen a
whole lot of this on I-70/I-68.  Which is fortunate for me... :)
(I _do_ keep it under speed_limit + 10, but...)

Perhaps it's just coincidence, but I could count on one hand the number
patrol cars (marked or otherwise) that I've seen over the last year or
so on that route.  ...and yes, I have the usual number of fingers :)

They are indeed.  The dividing line between the counties falls about a
mile west of I-79, cutting across the intersection of Rt 422 and Rt 19.
