Southbound off the Centennial Bridge into Rock Island.

Rock Island, IllinoisFeb 28, 20100 Comments

When travelling from Davenport Iowa to Rock Island Illinois, the State Police (although they’ve put this one away for years after the death of a trooper during a “safety check”) they’re at it again. If you are coming south across the Mississsippi River into Illinois, and into Rock Island specifically from Davenport Iowa (to the north), watch your speed as you crest the summit of the bridge. The speed limit is 30, but our law office has seen clients charged with up to Over double that speed limit. Due to the long span of the bridge and reasonable width of the lanes, people tend to accelerate beyond the speed limit without even noticing. Especially on early Saturday and Sunday mornings, or so the tickets issued would indicate. The obvious goal is DUI intervention, and the state of Illinois is well aware that after such an arrest, the jail is literally a 45 second Walk from point of arrest, so they are saving fuel cost by making DUI arrests at this spot, which is conveniently located right by the jail. Don’t be a victim. Don’t be stupid. and if you’ve been drinking, don’t drive. If you simply help yourself, get a ride home, take a cab, and pop in your favorite video game. Check your driving skills then. And you’ll realize you’ve made the right decision. We run a law firm. We make money off of people who are not aware of this speedtrap. But more importantly is the safety of the individuals who make up the community that is the Quad Cities. Be safe: Your money is as green as anyone elses. Speeding and DUI are equal opportunity charges in this state.
