Winthrop Harbor, Illinois Speed Traps
Conservation Police use radar at multiple locations along this one mile stretch of road in both directions. A favorite is just over the tracks heading East. Also, North Point Marina has a heavy police presence. Be sure to come to complete stops, use turn signals and watch alchohol consumption. Numerous DUI’s are issued every year!
Officers sit in First Baptist Church parking lot, limit is 30 mph.
Speed is set at 30 mph on 9th till you come to the school area where it goes down to 20 when children are present. In the mornings approx. 7:15 or so the officer parks on Russell and radars right between the signs so there is no way for you to drop your speed without slamming on the breaks. If you slam on your breaks you could get rear ended.
They sit at the La Villa Motel parking lot and shoot radar at North Bounders coming over the hill from Zion.
