Waterloo, Iowa Speed Traps
if you are traveling on Ansborough Ave and your vehicle is normal and gains speed due to the hills that are part of road naturally. be careful when you cross the highway. They("Waterloo’s finest") are just sitting and waiting!!
Cops sit at Ansborough Ave. by Black Hawk Dike all the time. As I go over the hill with my bike, they catch you before you can slow down.
Usually done the last week of the month.There are cops stationed along Falls Ave..radaring drivers and then they radio ahead to the police..they are usually in the parking lot of Community Body Shop..as the radared cars get close to this area..cops come out on the road and flag the drivers to exit Falls Ave and pull into the lot to receive their citations.
police park under the interstate and then again past the curve in the median.
They have lowered the speed limit here excessively, and they then sit on the other side of the bridge and ambush cars coming over the bridge. I’ve seen them out there weekly, for months at a time, usually in the morning; sometimes they have as many as ten squad cars out there, and they pull over almost everybody. They never got me, because I was always going north and they only seem to hit south-bound traffic. Ugh, this is why Waterloo has so much crime, because the cops keep everyone poor and then waste all their time harassing harmless drivers.
