Peoria, Illinois Speed Traps
Heading South on Allen Road just past Hickory Grove Road, the speed limit is 45mph. If you turn right on Wilhelm it’s 35mph, but if you turn left it’s 30mph. Makes no sense. There’s more housing on the right (west) side of Allen Road than there is on the left (east) side. Motorcycle police sit at Fire Station on Wilhelm (east side) about 1500 feet from the intersection and shoot radar at cars as they are turning left off of Allen going 45mph onto Wilhelm. My ticket was 41 mph in the 30mph zone and was approximately 850 feet from the intersection. If I had seen the 30mph sign I would have gone that speed, but I missed it as I was turning through the intersection.
north sheridan road between northmoor and knoxville ave. Southbound cars coming off knoxville ( 45mph ) enter a 30 mph zone. North bound cars go from a 40mph zone between glen and northmoor to a 30 mph zone after the traffic light to knoxville ave. traffic cars will sit and run radar for either direction and i have also seen motorcycle police sit on both sides at the same time.
They sit in the shoestore parking lot facing north on hamilton rd… they pick em off left and right
The police car will sit in the parking lot of Roc Ice Cream & Golf behind a sign. He is running radar down Farmdale Rd. coming into town. The speed limit drops from 45 to 35 well out into the country while most will continue at 45 until they get close to the Sonic restaurant.
Coming off of Sterling the speed limit is 45 mph and before you cross Sterling on Forrest Hill the speed limit is 40 miles per hour. After crossing Sterling the speed limit chnages to 30 mph before the posted speed limit says it chnages. A cop sits in the parking lots on either side of the road and pulls over drivers all day long. More so in the eveing hours. More so the last week of the month but will be found there any day of the month.
