Burlington, Iowa Speed Traps
Technically in Illinois but cops sit, usually, in the middle of the highway near Stevenson Lake up to the intersection with Carmen road. They occasionally sit on the south side of the highway at a small turn off. They primarily only stop eastbound traffic but they will stop westbound as well. Westbound you will usually see them before they would get a radar on you.
The local PD pulls off on the shoulder (near Curran and Central Street exits), then backs their cars up a grassy hill behind the highway signs and shoots radar from there. By the time you notice it’s too late.
speed limit is 25 and police sit in parking lot and make their quota for the month
This is a by pass around the city to the airport! Nice road but dips down to 25 mph before it even hits neighborhoods..then it should be 30. New school going in, also….cross Mason Rd. off your list as a by-pass around Burlington to the south…take the main streets , faster way to get where you are going!
Hilly road, very hard to drive the 55 mph limit; even with cruise control, speed will vary a few mph. Got ticket for going 57 in 55; fighting case, asked for jury trial.
