Novi Road near Grand River Road

Watch out for the cops on Novi Rd. between Grand River and 10 Mile. He’ll be on the east side of the road across from the Post Office (I think it’s a CAT office parking lot) Speed limit is 40, and people love to drive 50-60. Also beware of the cops that are constantly at the Grand River/Novi intersection waiting for you to make the illegal right on red.

On the north side of Grand River about 1/2 to 1/4 mile east of Beck Road, a cop will sit in a driveway with no lighting, perfect view of both directions of traffic and an easy path to pull out from. The spot is incredibly inconspicuous, and the road was rarely covered before it was redone. Speed limit is 50, but on the new, empty 5-lane road it’s easy to hit 60+

Novi Road between 12 Mile and 13 Mile.

Speed limit is 35 mph and the road has a nice curve on it. They have been along this stretch frequently of late.

Meadowbrook Rd. betw. 10 mile and 8 mile.

30mph on this road. 3mph over and it’s guaranteed you’ll see blue lights. Novi was basically a backwater town that became rich when all the yuppies all went upscale. In fact a downtown had to be "created" to make visitors think there’s some sort of history there.

Patrol is VERY stringent as the Novi cops have little else to do. I recently had my classic motorcycle confiscated due to the ignorant cops refusal to call the Secretary of State to validate whether my "authentic plate" was real or not. (Authentic and current plates aren’t in the same database). They didn’t know the law and I did. This made for a HUGE write up in the Novi newspaper about how inept the police really are. (My 5 minutes of fame)

But Meadowbrook is a known speed trap. There are so many cops that invariably one will at some point be behind you on your daily travels. I slow down to 10mph and hope that they pass me on the double yellow just as I’m focusing with my digital camera.

At the junction of northbound I-275 and westbound I-96, about 2 miles before the Novi Rd. exit, he’ll be sitting in the median, infrequently, but usually in the early am hours.
