Saint Charles, Illinois Speed Traps
They get anyone who doesn’t come to a full and complete stop.
During rush hours (morning & afternoon) officers like to sit in the curve just beyond eyesight until it’s too late to see them. 45 MPH limit on a 4 lane highway is just an excuse to write tickets. My wife travels this stretch about 15 minutes before I do, and calls me on my cell to warn me–this happens once or twice per week in the summer; less often in the winter
The officer sits at the bottom of the hill and gets cars as they go downhill and pick up speed.
Police sit in side streets on north side of Foxfield and are able to clock east or west bound traffic. Will also sit in the median near King Edward Avenue to catch eastbound traffic coming over a rise in the road or westbound as they come around a curve.
Officer sits on east side of Dunham Rd. just south of Royal St. Georges Ct. and north of St. Charles East High School facing south and getting southbound traffic as they come over a small rise into a school zone. Mostly there in morning but can be there at any time at area where speed is to be reduced.
