Novi, Michigan Speed Traps
I read online that a speed trap "red flag" is: a 30 MPH speed limit on a secondary paved straight road, located where most of the other roads in the area are posted higher. Some examples in Novi are: 9 mile is 30 MPH past Novi (west); but the same area on10 Mile is 45 MPH. Similarly, Meadowbrook is 30 MPH, while Beck is 45 MPH and Wixom is 35 MPH. Guess where the cops are?
I have seen officers sit in their cars on Haggerty Rd attempting to catch speeders coming South on Haggerty over the 96/696 overpasses. you won’t see until its too late. Minimum Fine $150.00.
car scouting Crescent Lake drive and Town Center Drive
north and east pass around mall area
watch speed – 25 mile zone and
make sure you stop at stop sign
watched one car puledl over every 15 min
Police there frequently pulling over drivers who go above 40 mph limit.
As of late, 2-car Police teams lay in wait at the never occupied "Meadowbrook Office Building" at the SW Corner of 12/Meadowbrook. One parks against the fence facing the turnaround (you need the turnaround to go S on Meadowbrook from W on 12 Mile); the other is by the parking lot exit on S bound Meadowbrook. If you do not come to a complete stop at the turn around, or exceed the speed limit on W 12 mile, one of the two will come after you. I have observed this several times.
