Grand Blanc, Michigan Speed Traps
On the outskirts of town between Saginaw Road and Dort Highway the speed limit quickly changes from 45mph to 25mph and most people only comply with the 35mph sign. Periodically, when there doesn’t seem to be anything better for police to do, there will be several cars hidden behind signage. Often the motorists will be followed for a time.
Approximatly once a month the Grand Blanc police team up with the Michigan State police and set up a speed trap aimed at the p.m. rush hour I-75 northbound traffic. One officer will sit either facing oncoming northbound traffic on the exit ramp or on top of the overpass. Whence this officer has found a speeder he radio’s ahead to one of the officers sitting up the the expressway. It is not uncommon for there to be 10 to 12 police cars sitting and waiting for the call. It has been stated that they only pull over vehicles driving 85mph or faster (the speed limit is 70mph).
usually sitting in the middle hidden by the shrubery nad what not.
Anywhere in Grand Blanc Township. Watch for Black and White cruisers… They vigorously enforce speed laws anywhere in the township. They love to use K-band instant on radar. If you are travelling North on I-75, slow down once you hit the Genesee County line. Township police, along with MSP, constantly patrol this area…. Laser is common on the highway here!
One trooper will sit on overpass Barley behind the Freeway sign that hangs on the bridge and there will be up to 10 cruisers down the Freeway lined up pulling people over when informed by the person in the Tahoe on the bridge with the radar.
