Redford, Michigan Speed Traps
Redford Police Are Determined To Pull You Over Do Under The Speed Limit Or Exactly The Speed Limit. Make Sure You Have Your Seatbelt On Too!
As I drove over I-96, the officer was on Dale St. on the right. He clocked me at 61 vs. limit of 45, but gave me a ticket for impeding traffic so that there are no points on my record. Still, the ticket is $140. It’s pretty easy to be flying over the bridge, especially if there’s no traffic, as was the case today….so watch out!
I was pulled over today at 8:15 am heading southbound just south of 5 Mile Road. As others noted, Telegraph is an alternative to the closed Southfield. Why they set up a trap during rush hour convinces me that this is the only way Redford has any income (and look around, not exactly a pleasant city).
Speed traps for both northbound and southbound. Local will sit in turnaround. Poor visibility for drivers due to railroad overpass.
As noted eslewhere, the entire township of Redford is a speed trap. This note is for all those forced to use Telegraph as the detour due to the closing of Southfield Freeway. The entire length of Telegraph through Redford; Joy Rd to Puritan (5 1/2 Mile Rd), is continuously patrolled with radar.
Specific sites they like to sit:
– Just north of Plymouth Rd, in the 1st turn-around
– 1/2 mile north of Plymouth, in the turn-around just past the railroad viaduct
– Just south of the I-96 bridge, in the side-streets to the right
– Just north of the I-96 bridge, to left and right (in the turn arounds, and side streets)
– Just north of 5 Mile, to left and right (in the turn arounds, and side streets)
– Just south of 6 Mile, to left and right (in the turn arounds, and side streets)
– From 5 Mile to I-96, in the parking lots of the closed businesses on the west (right) side along this stretch
– Just south of the I-96 bridge, on the right as the local lane merges into the bridge lanes
– Just south of the I-96 bridge, at the turn around before the railroad viaduct
– North of Plymouth, in the turnarounds past the railroad viaduct, and in the closed businesses on the west (right) side
– South of Plymouth, to left and right (in the turn arounds, and side streets)
In the week that The Southfield has been closed, I have already seen a minimum of one car pulled over every morning and afternoon. Consider this fair warning.
