Beloit, Wisconsin Speed Traps
Patrol often sits in the parking lot of dental offices on the north side of the street.
If you exit from I-39/I-90 onto I-43 heading towards Milwaukee it is 55 mph for about two miles so you’re cruising a 4 lane at 65 onto a 4 lane that’s 55–It’s worse from the other direction (coming from Milwaukee)–even though it’s posted to slow to 55 they sit just over the hill after the transition. There appears to be no logical reason for the speed change where its posted.
You will see them sitting in several different parking lots across from Fairbanks Morse Factory on the east side of the street. This is a new spot since the city has been enforcing speed limits due to a grant they received.
Shopiere Road between Murphy Woods and the interstate – I 90. Recently this road was widened to a 4 lane and it’s wide open, so it makes it harder to judge your speed. The police like to sit behind The Oaks sign or just north on a small road that leads to an obscure county park. The township police sit here whenever they need some income. It’s right in front of my house and sometimes see 4-6 people caught in an hour.
The police sit in the Mattress Company driveway. As you go west on State Hwy. 81 you can not see them until you are past them. It is a nice wide road on the very outskirts of the city. The speed limit goes up to 35 in a couple blocks and within a couple more it goes to 55. They also patrol regularly moving east and catching vehicles driving west.
