Gardner, Illinois Speed Traps
A Grundy County deputy is stationed on the overpass, sitting on a bucket so only his head and radar gun are visble above the guardrail and shoots the northbound traffic. There are 5 squad cars sitting on the northbound ramp, out of sight of the northbound traffic. When I came home on Weds. afternoon, all 5 had a car pulled over. This has happened on a Saturday morning as well.
On I55 near Gardner IL, one cop is on the overpass with a radar gun and another cop is in a car on the ramp waiting for the radar guy to tell him who to pull over. By the time you see the cop on the ramp its too late. I was driving on a saturday morning north from Bloomington going to Chicago. I suppose the cops were trying to catch speeding college kids (ISU) visiting home.
