Chicago, Illinois Speed Traps
Super Fast Yellow, try not to get rear-ended………..
across from the allero gas station. state troopers use this spot a couple times a month between the hours of 8 am and 1 pm. it is the entrance to a small plant on the south side of the street. most of his hits are eastbound so he doesnt have to cross traffic to catch his prey. he gets severavl victims an hour.
Obey the speed limits and you don’t have to worry about Speed Traps. Speeding KILLS people.
CPD has been working Grand Ave. changing positions from Grand Ave. and Chicago Ave. and Grand Ave. and Western Ave. This officer will show up to court as well.
Between toll booths and Indiana State Line, what should be a 65-mph expressway is posted at 45 mph for no good reason except ticket revenue. Prevailing speed is 65-70, so Chicago police generate tickets all day long with instant-on traps. As lead vehicle of a group of three eastbound in that speed range, I was targeted, stopped and ticketed for 69 in a 45. Asked why a 6-lane divided expressway was posted at 45 mph, the officer responded that it was not an expressway but a Chicago city street, and if I had a problem with that, I should take it up with the mayor of the City of Chicago. This trap was at the last exit before the Indiana state line, so I had crossed into Indiana before I found a safe place to pull over. How do Chicago police have jurisdiction in a different state, and how do they continue to get away with this? The mail-in ticket offers three choices: 1) pay up $95 with points, 2) pay up $95 and attend traffic school to avoid points, or 3) request a court date. I chose the latter but have little hope of being able to successfully defend this one despite my 100% clean record.
