Chicago, Illinois Speed Traps
The CPD is popping speeders on Western along Rosehill cemetary between Peterson and Bryn Mawr. The posted speed limit is 30, which nobody observes on this stretch. Looks like the new Lidar toys are in use according to the ticket I just got.
There is a sting operation happening on Cumberland right now. There are police cars literally lined up in the alley just north of Addison poaching folks. Sometimes three or more! One darts out to catch someone, than the next one is waiting in the wings. I’ve even seen an extra car on Waveland Ave. from time to time as well. This is a genuine sting operation.
Police officer stands at corner of Nagle/Raven aiming radar gun at northbound drivers. I passed at about 41 mph and did not get pulled over. Keep to 35 in the 30 zone.
At the Eastbound corner of 87th St. and the Southbound corner of Vincennes There are photo cameras that will flash your vehicle, if you proceed through a light that has already turned red. Even on a right turn from either intersection it will take a picture. A ticket will be mailed to your home with a photograph of your vehicle.
At the intersection of 99th and Halsted right off the Dan Ryan Northbound leading into 95th street. There are 2 cameras one on the Southwest and South east corners. The take a picture of thise running through yellow lights. This is a high speed intersection notorious for folks who fly right through yellow & red lights. Be careful
