State Highway 51

Cairo, IllinoisJul 04, 20040 Comments

Officer pulled us after going through town. Claimed 42 in a thirty zone. Sign said 40, but the area is known for rapid sneaky speed limit changes. Wife not sure how fast she was really going, but at 50, it is her first ticket ever.
Ticket is hand filled in as "local ordinance violation" rather than in the "________mph in a ______ zone" with the Illinois code that was printed on ticket. The officer offered to accept payment for ticket in cash. We declined.

I’ve been caught numerous times on Illinois Route 3 just north of Cairo. Usually they use various unmarked cars and take advantage of the speed limit rapidly decreasing from 55 to 35 as you enter the city.

This is to inform everyone that it’s not only out of towners that get pulled over, but also residents of Cairo. I have been pulled over and ticketed alot of times. Most have been thrown out of court, but it is still a hassle to deal with. My best advise for everyone is to stay clear from Cairo !!!!
