Peru, Indiana Speed Traps
Motorcycle officer is hiding on the north side of Main Street in the shadows with a radar gun shooting mostly westbound, but could shoot either direction. He is located west of the Eikenberry/Eddy Funeral Home and east of the intersection of Grant Street (the next stop-light several blocks west). The speed limit used to be 35 MPH in this area, but has been reduced to 25 MPH through Grant St intersection where it goes back up to 35 MPH.
Any one that has a out of state tags will get a ticket fo turning right on red here and make sure you use your turn signal here too but its all because you have a out of strate tag also there is a hill coming off of us 24 on broadway and the top of the hill you can not see him there speed limit goes from 45 to 35 to 25 in a matter of a block
There is always a light blue metallic Crown Victoria patrolling US 24 between Peru and Wabash. Anyone going over 65 mph will be stopped.
There is a new, unusually low, and artificial speed limit of 25 mph posted on hard to see signs–partially obscurred by brush and trees. Since this is a mostly country/rural area, drivers expect speed limits of 35-45 or even 55 mph. This speed trap is catching a lot of locals, too. This appears to be yet another attempt by Peru to raise badly needed revenue. You can pay several times the fine and they will not report the violation to your insurance company…be sure to ask the "occifer" .
