55th Street west of East Ave.

In addition to the seatbelt trap mentioned, the speed limit just went down on 55th street from 40 to 35. This continues all the way to 294 and across the overpass. East of East Ave, the limit is 45 and there is no warning of the speed limit change. Cops like to sit in the parking lot on the southwest corner of this intersection, as it borders the police station. They are shielded by the trees, so drivers coming westbound are not able to see them. Other side streets are popular for the new limit-it’s obvious countryside needs more revenue.

Limit is 40 and there is a cop who gets good coverage if you’re going northbound. He sits in the parking lot of the park and the trees obscure the view until you’re right next to him. Coming from the south, you have more time to react and tap the brakes if you see them.

The Countryside Police set up a roadblock here at night, stop drivers, and check for people not wearing their seatbelts. Not a speedtrap, I know, however I want drivers to be aware of this. Police in this area are already so vigilant about speeders. Most, if not all, drivers are aware of this. Everybody travels 5 miles BELOW the speed limit just to be on the safe side, especially late at night. I think the police have resorted to the desperate measure of setting up a roadblock, just to keep the revenue flow coming in.

Along LaGrange Road, between 55th Street and Joliet Road, the cops use the businesses and car dealerships to their advantage. Be extemely careful of the cars sitting close to the entrance and exits of car dealers lots, especially the Dodge dealer that just opened by the Browns Chicken. They blend in with the cars for sale, until you’re too close.

Car sites at the entrance of the closed forest preserve. When traveling south, car is unseen due to dark conditions until you are on top of him and too late to slow speed. Traveling north, a little more visible, but hard to see until you are on top of him.
