Officers use this route as a money maker for Grant Park. They are outside city limits but if you pay the ticket it goes directly to the town. They sit on 17 just before the 2 towers usually behind pine trees heading east.

T intersection before the curve where the Radio Antennas are located. Police hide and shoot radar for speeding. Also, this T Intersection is a very popular spot for SeatBelt and Sobriety Checkpoints during Holidays and Summer days. They stop you if you go 11 over the limit as well.

Grant Park is a village that probably is all of 16 blocks large, probably a population of under 200. The cop sits at the boundary as 1/17 approaches from the west. There is a 45 MPH sign at the usual distance from the city. There is a 35 MPH sign well before the town begins, which is absurd. But the real problem is that this is a trap. I had a radar detctor so I paid careful attention to my speed. The cop still wrote me a ticket for doing 51 in a 35, which I know is completely false. He obviously clocked me before I reached the speed zone. Moreover, the county citation forms says this "violation" is $75, but he wrote the ticket for $95. Nice racket. There is lots of transient traffic through this town. He can write $4000 worth of tickets a day, knowing that most of them won’t be contested.
