Ashland Avenue near 14th Street

Chicago, IllinoisMay 28, 20040 Comments

I have seen 3 "speed enforcement" squad cars (the newer ones with the vector lightbar, not strobes) hidden on the north side of the bridge by 14th and Ashland. I have spotted them before as it is a regular practice, yet this one time they caught me because I was trying to pass another vehicle. He claims he used Radar to measure my speed, yet I saw no radar gun, nor did my radar detector go off? The speed limit is 30MPH, for ALL Chicago streets, so watch out.

Interstate 94 near Indiana toll booth on the Skyway to the DanRyan

Chicago, IllinoisApr 21, 20040 Comments

as you are going north from Indiana into Chicago, you go on the skyway which is VERY high up and then come down about 3 miles into the toll booth. There is a cop behind anbuilding with his lights off clocking you as you come down the Skyway. He is totally hidden and you wont be able to see him at night even if you pass by him because he is behind a low building

State Route 59 near Army Trail Road

Chicago, IllinoisMar 05, 20040 Comments

Use caution when traveling on Rte. 59, between Army Trail Road and North Ave. (Rte 64), specifically 1/4 mile South of Army Trail. There is an overgrown service drive on the west side of the road (southbound lanes). The heavy vegitation reaching almost to the curb makes it very difficult to see anything sitting or standing in this area, let alone a patrol car. I have noticed patrol cars sitting here lying in wait for motorists. Due to the hidden nature of the driveway, it makes one wonder how any car could pull out of this area without presenting a dangerous hazard to other motorists.

190 O’hare Expressway near State Highway 190

Unmarked cop car tagging motorists on both lanes of 190. There are many other cops nailing motorists on various occassions. (No doubt due to Mayor Daley’s ‘revenue’ enforcement efforts…)

Interstate 94 W near Express lane

Chicago, IllinoisJan 29, 20040 Comments

After the I-94/I-90 split, the express lanes merge back into I-94. If the express lanes are reversed, watch out for a cop that sits at the "would-be" merge ramp hidden behind the concrete barrier. You can’t see them until you’ve blazed past.
