Tinley Park, Illinois Speed Traps
167th Street between Harlem Ave. and 80th Ave is 25 miles per hour. Police often sit in the parking lot driveways of the townhomes or near the park and watch for anyone driving over 25mph.
The municipal police car parked at the fire station on 167th and Parliament, is a decoy, and rarely if ever occupied.
Residental street. Vehicles use it to bypass Oak Park Ave. rush hour traffic. Squad cars sit on the street and in alley ways. Motorcycle units work the area from time to time.
Neilson West of 84 th Ave. is the newest spot for the prowl car. Rush hour speeders beware, 20MPH means 20 MPH, and if you fly down this curvvy stretch they’re not giving any slack. I saw once guy get pinched as he flew around the curve and almost hit a kid on a bike. Cops not taking any nonsense nor giving any slack.
Oleander and Olcott avenues between 171st Street and 167th Street. The speed limit is only 20 but there are few homes and a big retention pond so everyone does at least 30. I have been ticketed once and have seen the cops shooting radar two more times since I received my ticket. Beware!
When school is starting, when you have to reduce speed, there is usually a cop there hiding by the water facility. So do the limit during school hours. Just a little east of Oak Park on south side.
