Melrose Avenue

University Heights, IowaJan 30, 20031 Comments

University Heights is a town that is bound on all sides by Iowa City. A main artery feeding the University Hospitals from the interstate, Melrose Avenue, drops it’s speed limit from 35 to 25 while travelling through this "town". A long, sloping hill entraps unknowing vehicles on this road. Tickets are issued at 1 mph over the limit. A very large officer sits in his car all day issuing tickets. A true speed trap in all senses of the phrase!

I used to live on Melrose and they definately enforce this area but unless you have an attitude they will usually give you 5 mph over.
