Hoffman Estates, Illinois Speed Traps
The Police car will park in the Gas Station at Ela & Huntington and shoot Radar North up Huntington. This is multiple times per month.
There is often police lurking in the back parking lot of Hoffman Estates High School.
They are in a parking lot East of the Mercedes Dealership on Golf Rd, West of Shop N Save
Police often sit on the side of the road near the NW Mosquito Abatement building, sometimes ON the median. There is enough of a hill, or dip, going both ways, you won’t see them ’till it’s too late.
The speed limit on this fully improved, well lit 6 lane highway is artificially set at only 35 mph so when a sucker drives a comfortable (and safe) speed they get nailed, especially when there is no traffic after dark. As noted in other posts, landmarks include Higgins (Rte 72), Marathon (formerly Speedway), old city hall and Salem and Gannon Roads. This kind of greed (plus excessive sales tax, especially on food) makes me avoid Hoffman Estates businesses whenever I can.
