Elwood, Indiana Speed Traps
City police will set up near either the furniture store to the left of tops, or to the right at the garage that sells fireworks acrossed from hardies. usually in a dodge charger. they will turn off all lights and angle to see far down the road. radar detector will pick them up 9 times out of 10 way before you are in range.
There is a State Trooper that travels SR 37 from Elwood to Rigdon EVERY SUNDAY…he is in a unmarked Maroon sometimes silver crown vic and he waits until you are upon him to turn on his radar so there is no hope even with a radar detector!! He has gotten me twice in 2 mos and will write a ticket EVERY TIME!!!
The city police have been setting along the side streets of P Street, from SR 37 to Oakland School. They have greatly increased the citations issued in that area. I think the speed limit is 30 mph.
In the past 2 months, I’ve seen a State trooper pulling people over including me on two seperate occasions. It’s usually about two miles north on State Road 13.
The City of Elwood has several young cocky officers that run radar and will pull you over anywhere in town for going 5 over. Use caution in this city because they will pull you over for anything from a broken license plate light to what they State is excessive speed. The old timers in town will usually not write tickets, but the younger officers are hungry for arrest numbers, so be careful!
