Peoria, Illinois Speed Traps
Patrol car sits hidden behind concrete wall(only lights on top of car will show when you get close enough) of the entrance ramp from Main Street just prior to the Washington Street exit. They hit you with Radar as you are moving away from them. Do the speed limit when traveling through East Peoria on Interstate 74 or else.
The stretch of RT 150 that runs between the Par-a-Dice Casino and Interstate 74 is a favorite spot for cops. The limit is 45 MPH on a 4 lane, but it’s easy to get up to 55+.
They sit at the Intersection of Swords and Farmington mostly at dusk or night. Usually having another cop in the storage units next to daves billiards.
This area has No lighting, and cops will sit with all their lights turned off (hiding in plain sight) on the shoulder. By the time you see them, it is usually too late. Usually they are facing East bound, towards the Allen road intersection.
The speed limit on this section is not too restrictive, but it is so easy to go 10-15 over.
I drive across the brige just about everyday and there is a cop maybe once a week or a little less that sits in the median on the east side of the bridge.
