South Chrysler Service Drive/ W/B 9 Mile
The Hazel Park Police Department cruisers will sit in the Gas Station parking lot waiting for cars to stop at the red light right after coming of from I-75 and then turn right onto W/B 9 Mile. While the drivers are paying more attention to the other signs after coming-off I-75, the police department knows that more than likely, the driver will not notice the "No Turn right on Red" sign. Thus, they exploit this and target that specific corner to rake-in an approximate $25,500 per month or $306,000 per year in traffic fines (enough for them to purchase unneeded newer cruisers among other things). Many residents are afraid to drive anywhere near this area lest be targeted for failing to see some new sign the city has posted (since they know it’s crawling with cruisers). Even if the driver has had a clean record they will never give a warning…….only a $170 ticket for "Impeding Traffic $170.00 No Turn on Red". This fine is highway robbery and the tax-paying residents of this city should voice their opinions on this shady trap.
