Macomb, Illinois Speed Traps
As you come down the hill on Hwy 67 into Macomb, IL the speed drops suddenly from 65 to 50 mph. A patrol car commonly sits just over the hill where you can’t see him until you are already in the lower speed zone. Watch out at 8 am, noon, 5 pm and especially when school is coming back from a break or vacation.
On the US 136 and US 67, east side of City of Macomb, near the Wal Mart, Farmer King, and Mac. Toyota Dealer; there usually has speeding enforcement. It’s entrance of City and exit as well.
Macomb and MacDonough County are the home of a large state police station, an overly large and thirsty university police department and a large city department system. Young cops are frequently sent to the state dept. station to "practice" on the innocent. Stops can be based on utterly ludicrous speeding violations (1 or 2 miles over the limit) I have received both a 34 in a 30mph zone and a 33 in a 25mph zone (the latter after midnight on a deserted road). Watch out!!!
