Marion, Indiana Speed Traps
Officer in unmarked white car sets behind North end of Mall and just East of the rear of Dr’s office. He uses hand held K band radar to shoot both East and West on Kem Rd.
Particularly hard to discern when going West because Marsh store door openers display as K band on ur detector and you only have about 100 feet before his signal hits you. Primaribly there for morning rush hour but have seen marked unit in afternoon.
IMPD sets up all hour of day 4 lane rd they usually are parked in Goodyear Truck Tire lot, or at entrence to Trailer Court. 35 mph posted speed limit. they willwrite you for 3 mph over limt.
Sheriff cars routinely hide above the highway on the Gas City exit ramp and clock speeds. I drive this highway to work each day and I see someone pulled over between the Marion and Gas City’s exits several times a week.
Motorcycle state cop and occassionally local city police car.
BEWARE: state policy are trying to re-introduce motorcycles in use again. In trying to prove they are worthy of being used again, state cop is ticketing anybody and everybody. He has no mercy(fines given immediately-no warnings). He has also been seen East of Marion across Mississinewa bridge before railroad traks.
Beware if you drive S.R. 18 from the I-69 interchange to railroad crossing (about 8-9 miles in length). There are some speed patrols from the interchange to the Grant County Fairgrounds. Make sure to watch the median! When you cross the traffic light heading West on S.R. 18 into Marion, the speed drops to 30 MPH (it is safe enough for a speed of 40-45 MPH). There is sometimes an Indiana State Police car that enforces the speed, he usually parks near the intersection of Sweetser St. and S.R. 18. Beware he shows no mercy! NOTE: The entire length of S.R. 18 from the Mississnewa River to the interchange is about to be annexed into Marion (both directions of the road, about 7 miles in length). Now you will have 3 agencies that can patrol the road instead of 2 agencies. Those agencies now being the Indiana State Police, Grant County Sheriff’s Dept, and Marion Police.
