Deer Park, Illinois Speed Traps
Because there is a hill, the cop sits at the bottom of the hill and if you are traveling west bound on Long Grove Road you will not see him until it it too late. Neighborhood people are very good about flashing their brights to warn oncoming drivers . . .
West Cuba Road between Lake Zurich Middle School South and Ela Road is wide open country with limited turns and access. The speed limit should be 50mph but is 35mph so they have a place to write tickets…beware!

This is a service road that runs behind the increasingly popular Deer Park Mall – parallel to Lake Cook Road — between Deer Pk. Blvd. and Quentin Road. The speed limit is 25 on a stretch of road where there is usually no traffic. If a Deer Park policeman stops you, you will most certainly get a ticket – $75 non-negotiable.
Officers sit by the side of Deerpath behind bushes and just over rises in the road.
