Chatham, Illinois Speed Traps
Chatham cops have been parking along the cemetery… sometimes blocking the entrance or parked off on the side of the road.
As you are entering Chatham from Springfield (going South) both Chatham and State Police officers use the church on the right (southbound) as a speed trap because the speed changes relatively close to the church from 45 to 40mph I’d recommend paying attention through there because of this factor, I live in Chatham I know this because I’ve had friends pulled over along this site or because of this site.

A Chatham cop has recdently begun sitting on the corner of Plummer (W of Rt 4) and the loop behind County Market. The speed limit is 30 on this section of Plummer, but people zip through in the mornings and there are school bus stops that I think people were worried about the kids at.
Usually County. They sit several places along this stretch of road, but often on either side of the lake bridge where the speed limit changes from 55 to 45.
