Cowden, Illinois Speed Traps
Officers Hide behind buildings and in the grass along the route. They have been told by the village Mayor and Board to write as many tickets as possible because the Village is out of money. This leads to many stops far beyond the village limit. Also those using the Mode Road beware this road has a very unreasonable speed limit of 25 mph and it is trapped also.
City Officer sets in the middle of the village, stops mpstly female drivers.
Village Officer parks in closed sevice station lots to prey on out of town drivers mostly, while the local kids break every traffic law, in sight of this officer, as well as grown ups riding off road vehicles on village streets. Travelers beware of the paint ball fights on the state highway. we don’t see a state trooper unless theres an accident, about 2 times a year.
