Colorado Street

Merrillville, IndianaAug 03, 20110 Comments

Patrolled by County & City Police. Road was recently repaved, and was previously 40 MPH before construction. During/after construction it was changed to 30 MPH. Police use moving/stationary radar and will stop drivers in either direction. Anything over 35 on that road – and you will be seeing flashing red & blue in your rear view. Watch out and SLOW DOWN!

I-65 approaching 61st Avenue exit

Merrillville, IndianaFeb 28, 20110 Comments

State troopers sit on the overpass of 61st Ave clocking traffic from both directions. The interstate is 3 lanes, and recently repaved, but the speed limit is 55, which NO ONE does. NB traffic reduces from 70 to 55 just a couple miles south, but most people keep up the flow. I’ve probably seen more people pulled over SB, though. I’ve seen as many as 3 cars pulled over by 3 different troopers within a mile each way of that exit. Watch out!

Broadway Ave at corner of US 30

A no right turn on red onto US 30 is posted across 10 lanes of traffic. At night the sign is impossible to read, particularly in bad weather. In addition, the sign is not adjacent to the red light but is on a telephone pole at app. 7 feet high. Any truck going by blocks the sign from view. No sign is posted at the right turn lane before initiating the turn. Police sit and watch the intersection to catch anyone unaware of the sign placement.

Along Harrison Street where it becomes Madison Street

Merrillville, IndianaAug 26, 20100 Comments

Noticed one of the newest speed traps where Harrison Street becomes Madison Street (and vice versa) on the east side of the street. Merrillville Police are hiding along a well hidden dirt path that goes to the old Y&W Drive-In Theatre. It’s somewhat noticeable during the day, but if a cop hides there at night, you won’t even know they’re there, and they pull out.

I-65 at the 61st Ave overpass

Merrillville, IndianaApr 19, 20101 Comments

There is a tan colored vehicle that looks like a Blazer sitting like it is broken down on the overpass, but there is a policeman with radar inside of it. As you go under the overpass, you will see mulitple state troopers lined up on the entrance ramps of I-65 waiting to make stops. I also saw them with many people pulled over. This was seen going both North and Southbound.
