Wheaton, Illinois Speed Traps
Two of my kids have got their first and only tickets here. The Black Ford Explorer parks on the South side of the Road with other cars parked by train commuters. The speed limit was changed for 40 to 25 several years ago. FYI both tickets for my kids were written for Exactly 15 over and there by fell into the 15-25 mph range. Since they were under 21 at the time, means mandatory court appearance and if you request court supervision, then you are required to take a $90 Online traffic class, pay the fine $164, and $260 court fees. Get a lawyer.
Crown Victoria squad car parks in Church driveway facing North. Usually seen in good weather after dark. 40 mph zone but easy to get up to 50 or 55.
Traffic patrol officers often take radar from the south side of this stretch of road behind local businesses and churches. It is easy for the (usually marked) vehicles to sit far enough back from Roosevelt as to make it almost impossible to see them until they’ve pulled out behind you. Don’t go more than seven mph over the limit on this stretch of road.
Police cars park in church parking lots, or on side streets and will catch you going over the 30 mph speed limit heading to Naperville Road
Speed limit drops from 40 to 30 with no warning. Beware
