Bloomington, Minnesota Speed Traps
Bloomington police are very aggressive in ticketing those who exit from the Home Depot Center and/or Sam’s Mart parking lot and are slightly over the speed limit. Beware.
Bloomington Police hide in the Fire Station’s parking lot, they are very well hidden behind the closest house to catch speeders in both directions on East 86h Street between hwy 77 and 24th Ave/Old Shakopee Road. Also even if you are not speeding they will follow very close behind you to run your license plates, and/or see if there is anything(expired tabs, busted tail lights, etc)that they can pull you over for their money making quotas! Be Warned!
Bloomington Police sit in the driveway of the Armory, also at Xerxes Avenue, also at Brookside Avenue. Cars traveling on 98th Street between Penn & France Avenues are pulled over daily at all times of the day. Speed limit is 35.
South of I-494, Hwy 100 becomes Normandage Blvd. The speed limit becomes 45 mph. Troopers can be seen sitting on Poplar Bridge Road and also in the streets west of Normandale Blvd. with radar.
Northbound vehicles are targeted as they descend the hill before on Bush Lake Rd just prior to the cemetary. Usually a motorcycle officer will sit in the bushes in front of the cemetary before you can see him. As you round the corner there will be 5 squads waiting instructing you to pull over. This is done once in the spring and once in the fall at a minimum.
