Carol Stream, Illinois Speed Traps
Although the light is red-light photo enforced, police still hide in the shadows of the Fanny Mae parking lot observing westbound traffic and cars as they are stopped at the light, or as they are turning right on Gary ave. Since the parking lot is on a bit of a rise, the police get a birds-eye view of the corner and of that intersection. I work very close to this corner and co-workers have told me about a myriad of citations they have received. Left-turns on yellow, right turns without stopping, seatbelt violation, improper lane changes, no front license plate, etc…
Be careful if you are driving west on 64 and are approaching this intersection.
