Heavy police present on I-64 near East St. Louis. The cars are unmarked and and use Mustangs, Camaros, and Corvettes. Mostly use X-Band Radar. Numerous speed trap points. Several speed monitoring devices disquised (sorry for spelling errors) as construction signs. Speed limit is 55 in that area, I suggest you obey it. I have see patrol cars in mass quantities several times a month.

Be advised that the ISP has a very heavy presence on I-55 and I-64 approaches to the Poplar Street Bridge, east and west bound. The posted speed limit is 50 MPH, not 55MPH. The ISP will station a trooper with a radar gun on the Exchange Avenue overpass and have troopers lined up on the entrance ramp. I have watched them pull over as many as six vehicles at a time. Pay attention to what the big rigs are doing and you will be OK.
