Zeeland, Michigan Speed Traps
with all the hiding spots they have on this route, they also will follow as many cars as they can between the hours of 12:00am and 6:00am everday. they will wait in the turn around till you go by, then get on your rear bumper in the passing lane and hang there waiting for you to mess up. They will follow you till a another vehicle going in other direction goes by,then they will fall off you and chase after them. at this hour not much traffic, so it is easy to chase most cars,they will pull you over for the littlest things so beware. I travel this route five nights a week, during this time period. not a night goes by that they don’t have a vehicle pulled over.
Zeeland police pride themselves on their hiding spots all along Chicago Drive on weekend nights. Our friend is a Zeeland cop who told us that they have spots along the whole drive and they are sitting in places where you will Never detect them. If you’ve been drinking, take a cab when traveling through Zeeland’s Chicago Drive!
Zeeland Police sit in small machine shop parking lot on West side of road just north of Roosevelt. Posted speed limit is 35 mph. Nothing but factories, industrial. Recently paved, one lane each way with a left-turn lane between. Speed limit is unjustified. They nail you as you drive south from Riley St toward E. Washington, railroad tracks. You can’t see their car because there’s a slight rise in the road and a tree.
Recently, witnessed laser being used by the MISP between the 56-58 mile markers and sometimes run radar between the 58-62 mile markers. Watch out!
County Deputies will usually sit in the parking area of the Water Dept. building (just after the one house just north of New Holland, on the east side of 96 [behind the cattails and reeds]).
About two miles earlier there is a small sign stateing "Speed Limit 50" with ‘Ends’ in smaller print just under it. This indicates an unposted rural area speed limit universaly known as ’55mph’.
55 is the speed – no less, no more.
54 is ‘Impedeing Traffic’.
56 is ‘Reckless Endangerement’.
Everything north of this area is uncongested, flat farmland with miles and miles of nothingness.
I think a farmer might have hit a duck, once…in 1972.
