Chicago, Illinois Speed Traps
95th Ewing Avenue near 95 St. Bridge
Two second yellow, police car behind Skyway Dogs.
Interstate 94 near Kennedy Express Lanes
The Kennedy express lanes are actually near impossible to enforce. The simple fact is there is no speed enforcement in the express lanes. The express lanes are too narrow for speed traps and I have it on good authority that the Illinois State Troopers will not risk making traffic stops on that particular stretch of I-94. So good news for a change, happy and safe driving!
Green Bay Road near Forest Preserve & Community Center
Cops are now trying to crack down on those that speed on that street period. I noticed they sit heavily between the Preserve, The Center across the street, and the little space located right across from the auto shop that’s right at the light going north of the preserve towards Gojo’s! Beware because there will be many of them sitting there at one time…
US Highway 90 w near toll
On my way to woodfield mall one nite, the toll is usually backed up. as i was nearing it i saw a red mustang with the grill flashing cuz of the lights and sitting inside was a state trooper (he was siting on 90 e going back into the city). after paying the toll there was a black camaro with another trooper in it (this one, on 90 w). saw them bust a VW golf GTi, probably racing or something.
51st Street near West of Central Avenue
51st Street from Central Avenue west until the street ends (around Nashville) Cook County Cops strictly enforce stop signs here. There are 4 stop signs in a mile and a half stretch of road, so you better stop fully at each and every one of them. They like to hide in parking lots. By the time you see them, you’re already at the stop sign, so slamming on the brakes at that point will make you look suspicious enough to be pulled over. Make it a habit of stopping fully at all these stop signs. A fraction of a second stopping saves a ticket.
