There are several trees and large shrubs that hide the cop car and if you are driving west you won’t see him until you are very close. At that point the limit is 25 mph, so stay within that limit. Roselle is quick to give out tickets, so best to drive at or under the limit on all streets.

I was going southbound on Roselle Road, as I crossed the railroad tracks after Irving Park Road a cop pulled me over saying that I was going 15 over. There is no way i could be going that fast over the rail road tracks. It is a mouse trap. watch out people!
A police car pulls up over the curb, over the parkway lawn and parks on the sidewalk on the east side of Rodenberg Road about 1/2 mile north of Central Avenue, obviously with the lights off. Grabs any vehicle driving south coming over a slight hill just south of the railroad tracks. There’s not much light in the area, so it’s really difficult to see the cop car.
A police car sits on the west side of the street just south of the rail road tracks. There is a slight incline in the road as you drive south, so you really can’t see the cop car until you are almost on the tracks. What happens here is that they want to ticket you for crossing the tracks against the signal. It doesn’t matter how close you are to the tracks or even if your vehicle is on the tracks at the time the crossing bells sound, they will ticket you. That is an automatic court appearance.
