Swansea, Illinois Speed Traps
BEWARE…. Swansea Police regularly park along Big Bend- where it clearly marked, no parking on either side (unless you are a bully Swansea Police Officer) and look for ANYTHING they can to pull you over- talking on cell phone close to school, not using turn signal, seatbelt- etc. They harass anyone in the wider community that they can- all in the name of writing tickets = $$$ revenue for the Swansea, IL Police. They also lurk along 159 close to Schnucks- beware- the Swansea police drive like maniacs along Big Bend when children are walking home from school- one in particular that we call Lurch Jr- he looks like Lurch from the Addams Family- just alot shorter- he drives above the speed limit- frequently does u-turns- parks in no parking areas- all to lurk to write tickets. If you needed help- wouldn’t help you- only interested in writing tickets. Beware anytime you drive around the Wolf Branch Schools- They lurk over by the Fire Dept and around the entire area.
