Cape Girardeau, Illinois Speed Traps
Usually an Alexander County Sheriff or Deputy. I have personally been ticketed twice by the same unit. State Routes 146 and 3 intersect 4 miles east of E. Cape Girardeau, IL (and the Mississippi River). The 4 mile stretch from the intersection to the river is most often patroled later in the PM hours, but I have seen the area patroled at different times of the day. The patroling units will usually give you 5-10 MPH over the posted speed limit of 55, which becomes 45 (or 35, I can’t remember) as you enter the small village of E. Cape Girardeau.
