Downers Grove, Illinois Speed Traps
This is the stretch of Finley Avenue north of Ogden Avenue where it runs parallel to I-88 and under I-355. There are three potential waiting spots for police on the north/west side of the road. Since this is a very wide arterial road and runs parallel to the highway, the temptation is there to exceed the limit. Police seem to spot you 10mph before they pull anyone over. Can happen any time day or night.
Cruiser sits in the closed park district entrance about 1/2 mile south of 31st Street clocking wiht radar. Most prevalent just after evening rush until about 10:00pm.
A DG officer sits on Elmore Ave. or in a local resident’s driveway. Enforcement occurs primarily after complaints of speeding. It is infrequent, but heavy when in effect.
Trooper sites on I-88 heading West bound away from Chicago. Right were I-355 connects as your on I-88 he sits there waiting, and if you look up on the overpass bridge, there is a camera picturing your car/plates…be careful. Also as soon as you merge onto I-355 south…theres another trooper on I-355 about 2 miles down the interstate…hopes this helps….Civic Ryder!
they usually hide under the bridge of 355 going either direction on I-88, but they also sit in between the guardrail in the median and face either direction.
