US Highway 12/ Rand Road near State Highway 53 to lake cook Rd.

Palatine, IllinoisAug 12, 20081 Comments

From Lake Cook Road to Route 53, Rand Road travels through Palatine with a speed limit of 35.In Kildeer to the north and Arlington Heights to the south, Rand Road has a speed limit of 45. Rand road and its surroundings are the same through Palatine as in Kildeer Arlington Heights. This is Palatine’s primary speed trap. Many people don’t realize the drop in the speed limit or they think they are going as fast as they really are going. If it were’nt for my radar/laser detector, I would have gotten a ticket several times for going 45 to 55 in a 35. Between new Hicks Road and route 68(Dundee Road) is the primary spot for Palatine cops to watch traffic. There are two small hills you go over and Old Hicks Road is in the middle. They sit in businesses driveways, or even sometimes right in the middle turn lane just as you come over the hill. They might be on top of the far hill and their laser gun can get you right as you come over the first hill. They also frequently sit in the townhome parking lots between 53 and Dundee Road. They might if their bored or its a slow day ticket you for going 41 to 45; but its usually 45+ that they ticket you for. Many main roads that go throuhg Palatine are underposted by 5 to 10 MPH lower than what traffic moves at and what is safe, but Rand Road is the worst. If you go more than 10 MPH over the speed limit in Palatine, you have a 90% chance of getting ticketed.

US Highway Rt. 14 near Willow/ Palatine Rd Road

Palatine, IllinoisApr 17, 20080 Comments

This morning, I saw a Palatine police suv sitting in the vacuum area of the gas station at Palatine Rd. and Rt 14 sitting northbound, and it looked like he was talking on his phone. As I traveled southbound 1 1/2 blocks, I saw the p.d.’s black Dodge charger facing northbound sitting in the JJ Twiggs parking lot. I couldn’t see if he was on his phone, but it looked like a perfect area for watching for speeders and non-seat belt users. Watch out!

Heavy enforcement of the No Left turn sign on Northbound Rand into Home Depot. officer hides across street behind Denny’s in high traffic situations. It’s an expensive trip to the hardware store for people every day.
