I got a speeding ticket on Rt. 59 just north of Plainfield. I was clocked at 57 in a 45 area. As a result I took a driver’s safety class to keep the points off my record. During class discussion I learned of this web site and also that 3 of 19 speeding tickets (20 students in class) in this class were written between 119th street and Plainfield on Rt. 59. Also this section of Rt. 59 has had a drop in limit that I did not know about. Keep your eyes open on this stretch of road.
I got my ticket at 11pm and the others got their tickets during the afternoon. The Plainfield baracks is on this stretch of 59 so its a great place for the guys to get their quota for the day and move on.
Residential street that is a weel-known short-cut that shaves almost two miles off the trip. Squad usually sits in private driveway just south of 126.
