Braidwood is a former coal-mining town. The coal played out decades ago; while I feel sorry for their economic loss, it is still no excuse for them to become the automotive equivalent of Somali Pirates to stoke their city coffers. I was on my way out of town, almost to the interchange where I assumed the speed limit went up. Not so, according to the nice officer. The only plus side of this encounter is that he was respectful and professional in his demeanor.

Interstate 55 near Exit Number 233-236

The Braidwood "City" Police set out on I-55 starting at Reed Road Exit# 233 up to Il. Rte. 129 Exit #236. They set on ramps, in the emergency turnarounds (in middle between lanes), sometimes one on overpass "shooting" the traffic in the back, with chase car on ramp. Would this be one definition of "poaching"?
