Davenport, Iowa Speed Traps
Traveling westbound on I-80, I passed two or three Davenport Police units which had five cars pulled over at one time. There was likely an officer clocking traffic from an overpass. This was a major operation run by city cops (not state troopers). Beware of the 65 mph zone from the Mississippi River through Davenport. This was the worst speed trap I saw on a trip from Chicago to Denver.
Automated Speed & Red Light Camera. 35MPH. Signs are posted. This only applies to cars going South on Division. This monitors a bike path crossing with traffic lights to stop cars when bikers want to cross Division. A school zone follows this speed trap that has a 25MPH limit. The school zone has two schools across from each other so I recommend you comply in either directions. Way too many kids running around and crossing the street.
Red Light & Speed camera in all directions.
Unmarked white Chevrolet Astro Police Van, outfitted with radar and laser aimed out the back window. Parks on the grass next to railroad trestle 1 block away from East Village.
Frequently during the am and pm commute, there is a state trooper sitting in the concrete median right in front of the John Deere training center on I-80 between Hwy 61 and I-74. He’s usually sitting on the west bound side ready to pounce on both east or west bound traffic. Beware!
