Illinois State Cops, Unbelievable Luck Yet Again!

So I am going down I-90 westwards from O'Hare where I dropped my friend at the airport. I stop at the O'Hare toll, pay my 80c (I swapped my I-PASS for a Florida E-Pass/Sunpass) and start leisurely making my way up to 92mph for my 10 mile drive to Schaumburg.

Alas, I get to about 88mph on the left lane about 2 miles past the toll and I see a Illinois State Police trooper in his Crown Vic with his lights on. I think to myself, great 2 yrs of not getting a ticket down the drain, along with a 2x $95 tickets + $30 for school. Cop walks out, asks me whats the rush...I reply I dont have an excuse and I know I was speeding and weaving through traffic. I whip out my license and insurance card and he says "I didnt have my radar on so I didnt get how fast you were going but Ill let you choose and go easy on you and youre being honest with me, ill either write you a speeding ticket for 1-20mph over or following too close." I say "Ok, same fine so just give me the following too close." I think...damn a nice cop, he could have screwed me in for $200 in tickets and a mandatory court appearance + a ticket for having illegal window tint. He asks me if I have a bond card, so I tell him Ive got my AAA card so he takes it and my insurance card. By this time im looking like a douche on the E-Lane of I-90 (anyone knows that in Chicago its extremely hard being pulled over for speeding because traffic often moves in excess of 80mph.) So the officer goes back into his car...sits down for all of 5 seconds then hes going back with my documents...im thinking oh crap now what.

Alas! he says "Ive got an accident up ahead, stop cutting people off and get outta here."  bigthumbsup  Unbelievable luck I think and I drive off to realize this is the 5th time ive been pulled over in Illinois/Florida and not gotten a ticket. I knock on wood now and celebrate another great chapter in my run ins with the police forces of America!

I was back in that Grid Square last week - was there for 10 days . . . staying at my Mom's place in Waukegan/brother's place in Kenosha.

Didn't even think to give you a shout. My bad.


You're right about the interstate speeds there. We took a limo down to Navy Pier, and that guy didn't bat an eye at 80+ with that big ass Lincoln. And people were blowing by us like we were parked.

Also drove on I-80, 88 and 39 while out that way - I moved along with traffic most times. I-39 was a treat, morons in central Illinois tend to go side by side at 65mph . . .  irked

Speaking of fines, did you see what going to happen in Virginia starting July 1st. Example given from the Washington Post doing 20 mph over the limit on the beltway which is classified as reckless the fine is $200 fine plus a civil fine of $1050 from the state, payable in three easy installments. DUI is a $300 fine and another $2250 from the state. In short if you're a bad driver and resident in Virginia now the time to correct one driving behavior.

I do believe I owe you brews from not making it to Vegas. Alas, I was in Northern Minnesota (Gunflint Tr. and BWCA area) fishing for 8 days. Im most disappointed you said nothing.

Central Illinois? I do believe you mean Southern Illinois (Anything south of Joliet)...yea they are worthless...I hate them almost as Wisconsin State cops hate FIBs (****** Illinois Bastards)  Big grin

Im just glad I wasnt pulled over by an ISP Intrepid...thats just shamefull to get pulled over by that POS.

20mph is reckless? Oh my..its bad enough that you cant have a radar detector.

I think Virginia and all of America should adopt the policy in Poland:

A nice one, coincidentally ive never been pulled over outside of IL and FL. However I have been pulled over by the following:

Illinois State Police
Schaumburg Police
Hoffman Estates Police
Palatine Police
Schiller Park Police
Illinois DNR
Cook County Sheriffs Department
Orland Park Police
Florida State Police
Ormond Beach Police
Daytona Beach Police
Port Orange Police
Florida State Wildlife Police
Volusia County Sheriff
Seminole County Sheriff

Come to think of it, that is a rather long list..in 6 years.

At least in Georgia the cops can't pull you over with radar/ laser until you have exceeded the speed limit by more than 10 mph. And any speeding ticket of 14mph or less stays off your driving record so the insurance companies and employers will never know about it.

Good to see the guy wasn't badge heavy.

The most tickets IIRC I got was in Skokie (that's not where I lived, but grew up a few blocks away from there)...bloody got too many tickets there and had to go to court/driving school all the time... cry 

Chicago coppers...I think I got just one or two tickets from them...but nothing majour really.

Where I live now, a good friend of mine is a cop here and he'd bloody give his own mamma a speeding ticket... spin

You got pulled over by Game and Fish? were you poaching or did you take a lobster out of season? Smile

my nephew was a Game and Fish Officer(now he's a deputy sheriff). He drove a F-150 and would pull people all the time. Most people would tell him"you arent a cop, you have no right to pull me over". He would point to the words on his truck--STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER-- and say "tell it to the Judge, sign here please".

Oh yeah, central northern Illinois is for sure. Whenever I drive to go visit my family in Chicago from here in Kansas where I'm living, I have to end up on I-88 which meets up with lovely I-39 in Rochelle. Coincidentally, I also did my first solo on a Cessna 152 from DuPage Airport to Rochelle and back (look for the tiny airport just on the south side of I-88, just to the west of I-39 I believe...if you blink, you'll miss it).

Spitting from Rockford northwords will actually result in your spit stopping on a tollbooth. Dont you just love the sign when you enter IL from WI on I-90. "The Illinois Tollways welcomes you" might as well add: "Welcome to IL, where your wallet will now be raped and you will encounter the crappiest stretch of I90 in the country."

It was over in Holy Hill (Daytona ghetto suburb) on Nova rd. going towards Ormond Beach. I was weaving through traffic going 70 in a 40. Whilist weaving through traffic I cut off a brand new black Ford Explorer. That bastard immediately put his lights on near his rearview mirror and pulled me over and waved at me his Wildlife Police State Badge. Man he was pissed off. He could have taken me to the slammer easily. Oh yea, my now idle 2001 Chevy Blazer had double registered IL plates at the DMV here after it was titled and re-titled and then re-titled again between me and my dad. What does this mean? The guy thought the car was stolen, I had to put my hands on the hood as he checked my registration against the VIN on the side of the drivers door. In the end he let me go after I made up some BS excuse I had to take a test. I think due part in it that I had my US Border Patrol hat and he was an ex-Border Patrol officer as he told me after he let me go and we talked for 5 mins...

I didnt doubt for one second he was a cop, he had cop lights and waved his badge at me just to make sure. It would be another story if it was the FDOT  Silly

I recommend you get the Beltronics Vector 995 for a $250USD budget in Ameirca (Except VA/DC). One plus side is its got Ku band, so if you decide you want to speed on another continent (just like me) you are protected..infact you should always use protection.

However my Canadian friend, to you and my Virginia and DC friends I recommend the Beltronics Pro RX65. It has Ku band and the most important part a VG2 radar detector detector that your fellow mountees use. That way you wont get raped for using a radar detector, like I said, always use protection. My brother has this one in his car, it is a damn nice anti-ANCflyer unit.

59 Post contains links and images LOT767-300ER : Well so far we have 3 Americans between the ages of 35-60 disagreeing with essentially 3 Europeans (and maybe Ill count NWA742 as the lost yankee   )
60 DavestanKSAN : I'll reserve comment on your driving, I haven't seen you drive so I can't fairly comment. Just wondering, LOT, since I know you like speed and cars, y

66 Type-Rated : I've driven on Autobahns in Germany before. I know what European driving is like. Granted, people there drive faster and they DO strictly obey the law
67 Post contains images LOT767-300ER : I have a private and working on multi.... Actually that is not the case at all, had you said that 10 years ago it would have maybe been somewhat true
68 Itsjustme : Disagree with your first statement but agree with the second. I can't speak to Canadian law but you should probably keep your aggressive driving prac
69 OPNLguy : The new speeding fines are a bit overdone, but the new DUI penalties are right on target, IMHO. Hitting them in the wallet with higher fines might ha
70 LOT767-300ER : Thats why I have 2 cars, and 2 licenses, one of them being a license that you can't revoke even if you gave me a 100 tickets in one day. I dont mind

73 Flyorski : This still does not justify speeding. It is true that on the Autobahn people drive as fast as they want, and statistically there are less accidents,

78 LOT767-300ER : Great ill be looking forward to it. Sorry, but the average driver where I live does speed excessively on the interstate. Dont give me that BS because

80 LOT767-300ER : It is a rather fine record...being that I took into account our last thread about this (2 years ago) and Ive been pulled over for speeding ONCE since
81 ACDC8 : That doesn't really prove a point, besides the German road network is much more dense and not to mention has more traffic driving through it on a day
