Red Bud, Illinois Speed Traps
coming from chester on rte 3, through ruma, we got a speeding ticket. the speed was 35mph and when we saw the 55mph sign, started to speed up. we were ticketed for speeding because "we had not yet passed the 55mph sign"(we were about 60ft from it), so effectively the speed limit was still 35mph.
Police pulled me over for going 5 miles over (I think it was 25) but It was 1 p.m. on a school day with no children in sight. When I asked was told there were teacher conferences that day. However, I noted the sign says speed limit applies “When children are present.” He gave a warning.
Emtering into Red Bud from the North just past the curve over the bridge parking lot gas station.
Entering Red Bub from the South just past the Alco Store up on parking lot across from Pizza Hut.
