Livonia, Michigan Speed Traps
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
The police seem to love this zone! I have found individual units using both radar and laser, but it is not uncommon to see (or not see) a completely unmarked car clocking speeds while a 1/2 to 3/4 mi. ahead will sit 4 to 7 pursuit cars neatly lined up on shoulder. WOW!!!
Police will park on Angling near the entrance to the O’reilly Auto Parts parking lot facing 8 mile, or in the left turn lane on Angling a short distance back from the intersection. Because of the position, cars on 8 mile cannot see the cop until they are already right in front of him. Nasty speed trap, and the police that sit here WILL issue a ticket every time.
