A drug checkpoint along Interstates 55/70 near Collinsville,Illinois. Before the Black Lane exit, they posted signs indicating that a drug checkpoint lay ahead. Further down the highway, beyond the Black Lane exit, Collinsville officers stationed unoccupied squad cars headed the wrong way on the Interstates with headlites flashing as decoys. Thus, the Black Lane exit appeared to be the last and only chance to avoid the checkpoint. However, the actual checkpoint is at the end of the Black Lane exit ramp. If you get off there Collinsville police will tear your car apart.

North and south bound 255

Collinsville, IllinoisDec 01, 20000 Comments

The emergency U-turn in the center of the 6-lane highway is located in a valley between two high hills. If you are speeding going north or south and come over the hill, they have you (if they are using radar). Airplane is used randomly, approximately once a month or two. Usually only for north-bound lanes, speed is checked after the I64-255 interchange, just before the two hills.
