Shannon, Illinois Speed Traps
Always have a cop sitting in the 30 mph zone where it changes after 55 mph.
Shannon Illinois is well known for its rigid enforcement of its 25 mph speed limit through town. The town is just 10 miles from Lake Carrol, which has 700 vacation homes, many over a million dollars. The regulars know not to speed through Shannon, but lake visitors are easy prey unless warned. Enforcement peaks during and leading up to big weekends. The officer usually sits in his white, unmarked car anywhere from the center of town to the west. I have never seen him on the east side, but this cannot be ruled out.
