Ladd, Illinois Speed Traps
East Cleveland Street (A.K.A. 1600 North Avenue) is know as the "back door" into the Village of Ladd. The road starts at 3540 Street East at the Bureau/LaSalle County line east of town. The road is very rural until you hit the village limits. In town, the road is known as East Cleveland Street and is spotted with some newer homes on the south side of the street and two on the north with mostly farm fields. The speed limit on this road was lowered to 35MPH in the 1990’s to please the residents that built there. In recent years, the speed limit was lowered to 25MPH. The local police sit at the east end of the cemetary which is located next to railroad tracks. The police in this town have very little to do and sit here for hours on end. They will stop you for the slightest violation of this rather pathetic speed trap.
