Ann Arbor police usually use black "ghost cruiser," parked in driveway of truck rental agency, clocking east bound traffic on severely under posted Plymouth Rd., set at 35-mph (should be at least 45-mph). Motorist pursued east, usually pulling into auto service station at Plymouth and Broadway, for a draining of driver’s wallet, to keep city’s coffers full. Speed traps are a big business in Ann Arbor.
It is unfortunate that it is believed that the two business have not told the cops to cease running a speed trap and writing tickets on private property.
When heading south the speed limit on Pontiac drops from 45 to 25MPH in a short distance and police frequently position themselves on side streets. You are traveling downhill and it is difficult to drive at the 25 mph limit so everyone is an easy target.
Actually in Salem Twp. The cops love to sit on Dixboro corner in the dark and wait for people at the four way stop to roll the stop sign. There aren’t any street lights so cops are impossible to see if you’re not looking for them. Don’t pull up to where the actual intersection is either, you must stop far back where the sign is, although you can’t see around the corner.
