Monticello, Illinois Speed Traps
East edge of town. Including all the Sheriff’s Deputies and City Police officers, Officer Clark badge number 29 writes more than 95% of all traffic tickets issued in Piatt County. A true speed trap!
City police sit in the median east and westbound.
where the signs say begin 55 they meanit. They pass out speeding in construction zone tickets that cost about $750.
As you enter or leave town on Monticello Rd, also known as Ridge road, cops will "hide" in the entrances to the sub-divisions on both the north or south side of the road as well as sitting in the parking lot of Tatman Retirment Center. The speed limit is slower than you would think it would be going in both directions (30). Leaving town (going east) you would think you could speed up, and coming into town (going west) you may just not get slowed down soon enough.
Monticello Police will sit next to bridge in between the 2 Monticello exits.
