Crystal Lake, Illinois Speed Traps
2 cops sitting in the right turn lane onto ackman watching people speed down rakow
About 1.5 to 2.0 miles north of the intersection of Rte. 176 and Walkup Rd. there is a hill and a valley. The police have been observed early morning on the West side of Walkup Rd. hiding in the shadows so they can catch southbound vehicles the come over the hill. They sit about 1/4 mile or so in the valley down from the top of the hill.
Cop in unmarked Black Chevy SUV will sit in the gravel driveway on Randall Road just South of Ackman on the Airport side of the road where the old abandoned house used to be. Speed limit is 55 so if you get a ticket here you probably deserve it.
Better make a full stop at the stop sign at Terra Cotta and Half Mile Trail (just west of TC Industries)! Smokey Bear is hiding in the bushes, especially after dark, and he’s hungry!
Usually most week nights, there will be a cop sitting at the southbound onramp from Route 14 to Route 31 and will sit on the side of the ramp of a few houndred feet past the ramp with his lights off and since its pretty dark, you dont see him until your passing him, and he radars both northbound and southbound traffic since you cant see him either way. Very uncommon that you do not see a police car there after 9 or 10pm.
