Naperville, Illinois Speed Traps

Just north of Martin Ave., before Hillside on the east side of Washington, NPD likes to sit in the parking lot of the transformer building (across from Naperville Cemetery).
Jefferson just west of Ogden Ave. all the way into downtown Naperville. Jefferson Ave. is covered pretty regularly by radar. It’s hard to slow down here because you either just came off Ogden or crossed Ogden on Jefferson at 40 or 45 and the speed limit suddenly drops to 25 mph residential. I got caught not paying attention to the speed change just before Will o Way Park by a squad car hiding on the side street (Waterford Ct.)on the leFort I’ve also seen them hiding further east off Jefferson between the River Rd stop sign and the Firemen’s Memorial Bridge. They are pretty strict here (still 25 mph). There is no talking your way out. You are better off heading westbound on Aurora right in front of the police station. The speed limit is higher and there is no trap.
The limit from Columbia eastbound is 25, but changes from 25 to 25 about 1 mile east of Columbia. Cops ticket people eastbound for as little as 26 or 27, eastbound. Oc course, they ticket people coming westbound at the place where the limit changes from 35 to 25.
On the south side of Washington Street at Ring Road is a small parking area for families who fish on or picnic near the Du Page River. The area is abundant with trees and a prefect location in which a Police Car can sit.
Occasionally, I have seen while coming around the curve from the Washington/Naperville intersection, a cop sitting with his Radar Gun right where the trees can hide him. If you look quickly toward that area as you come around the curve,you might just see him there at random times of the day.
