Ashland/127th/Vermont/Halsted Street

Calumet Park, IllinoisFeb 07, 20060 Comments

Calumet Park is one of the most notorious South Suburbs in terms of traffic enforcement. In fact, they have been known to rank up there with Stone Park in terms of how often drivers get nailed.

Areas to watch out for Cal Park’s finest include Ashland Avenue from 123rd to Vermont. They will sit in the Panozzo Disposal lot or in the Metra Electric Parking lot. After that point, they are liable to sit on the side streets radaring motorists. Between 125th and 127th, they will sit in the parking lot of a small strip mall, the Family Dollar Parking Lot, the Senior Citizens Center Parking Lot, and either of the gas stations at 127th after hours. After 127th, they will sit in the Plaza Hotel lot and a vacant lot near Vermont St. If you think you are safe near the mall at Vermont St., you are dead wrong. They routinely patrol that mall and will sit off to the side on Ashland. On Vermont, they sit around the school on Laflin radaring motorists and will hide on the side streets. On 127th, they will use the gas stations, a church parking lot, and the parking lots of various businesses to radar traffic. Speaking of radar, Calumet Park uses an Instant-On Ka Band Radar.

If you head west of Ashland on 127th St, don’t expect things to get any better for you. The police will use the church lot at 127th and Wood as well as the Metra Lots and the Bowling Alley Parking Lot. In addition, the police will use Winchester Avenue to their advantage in order to radar traffic since parts of Winchester are hidden by a bridge.Calumet Park Police will get assistance from their neighbor, Blue Island, on traffic stops and Blue Island is as bad, if not worse than Calumet Park in terms of Traffic Enforcement.

Currently, they have new black cars that are nearly impossible to see until it’s too late and they are known for sitting lights out in the previously mentioned locations.
