Dubuque, Iowa Speed Traps
Dubuque police run a speed trap in clear weather. A dark green Dodge pickup sits on a brim 3/4 of the way up the hill with radar . Up to five squad cars are lined up on Digital Drive behind the brim. Please drive safely. Do not speed approaching Dubuque from the south.
Penn Ave is a very hilly street. Most of the street is 30 mph. However at the entrance to Flora Park it changes to 25 mph and cops love to sit right at the entrance to the park and pick up speeders. In that location they can also keep an eye on the park as well.
While going to or from the Dubuque Airport there is an Overpass for traffic wishing to go to Cedar Rapids. Below the overpass are two spots in which a cop can get you from. One for traffic to DBQ, another coming from the KDBQ area. He hid’s under the overpass and the area is already dark from lack of lights. So DO NOT SPEED DOWN THAT HILL! As tempting as it may be.
Reported 72 mph when doing 55 mph, was at the end of a long line of cars.
