Shelbyville, Indiana Speed Traps
police will hide behind bushes or other cars on east side of street. Speed limit changes to 30 heading towards Hi-way 9 just before Rampart St.
(2)Locations on The New Progress Road Parkway….At the top of the hill where the railroad track crossing is….They pull behind the CSX RR Box providing cover…..2nd is located just at the bottom of the hill….South of McKay Rd in the Twelve Oaks Subdivision….Police sit back in the cove and clock speed coming down the hill….Will hit you with lights when you turn left or right on McKay Rd.
Eastbound from I-74 passing the new Pilot Truckstop there is normally a Shelbyville Police car backed into the brush (on either side near the Kroger Warehouse Truck entrance) or in the parking lot of American Warehouse. The speedlimit is 30 mph there because of the sharp turn onto 125W. There is a lot of truck traffic for the Kroger Distribution center.
Cops sit near Arby’s, and run radar on Progress Road. It is a long stretch of road with nothing on it other than the entrance to an apartment complex. The speed limit is 30, but everyone goes 50. The speed is way too slow through there!
One often sits either at apartments west of St. Rd. 9 which is below the hill on the north side of road, also sometimes in the field between Pennisula Dr. and MeridiaStreets, also on the south side of road at the pump station before the hill by the High School on Miller St.. Usually between 12:00 and 3:00 p.m. but many other times througout the daylight hours. Rarely in the dark.
