Livonia, Michigan Speed Traps
The stretch of Newburgh between 5 mile & Plymouth has had the timing of the lights changed, and the intersection of Newburgh and Lyndon is a hot spot. The LPD backup into a residential driveway on the NW corner, on and off all day long. They may switch up the times and the cars but not where or how the park. Backing into the driveway makes it easier for them to pull out, but also hides the “marked side” of their vehicle. Be careful, follow the laws, because they will get you for speeding, running a late yellow or red light, and when stopped they look for seatbelts, plus have time to run your plates… along with anything and everything else.
southbound middlebelt south of (Schoolcraft) 96. just past the viaduct the cops sit in the driveways just waiting…..
Hubbard between 5 Mile and 6 Mile is a residential road that has a very long and set back entrance to the Buchanan Elementary School. Next to the school entrance is a church. A cop car is parked in the church parking lot and waiting for anyone going over the speed limit. The speed limit is 30 miles, however most go over the speed limit since it’s a low traffic area and it’s an easy trap to be caught in. The school is not on Hubbard road, and you have to drive far off Hubbard to get to it. But being that close to an elementary school still makes this an ideal place for cops to assert their letter of the law on speeding.
The Michigan state police an the Livonia police target this area during the work commute . They will position a cop on the 8 mile over pass an radio down to waiting cars . Be very carful through this area as typically they have so many cops up to 12 that is causes major traffic backups an sudden stops thus several accidents.
There is a patrol car parked in a driveway on the west wide of road almost every day
