Speed trap alert!

There is a speed trap on 88 west bound near Naperville road in the construction zone. They are gunning from a dump truck and then have cars pull the people over just past it. There was already a bunch of cars and bikes pulled over so be careful.

I nearly got pulled over this morning. Pulling out of my street I was slipping the clutch a little more than normal to wear in new clutch plates - so he heard high revs. The cop stopped next to me at the lights and told me he couldn't read my plates from a distance due to the angle. I bent the plate down and he drove off

I wouldnt worry about that they can verify you have a m class when running your dl

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Make sure they renewed the M class. There is an additional $5 charge at renewal. I just renewed and they almost skipped it.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I didn't, just an eye test since I went in.

They were pulling people over at 5:30 this morning Eastbound too.

I'll have to keep an eye out when I head home. Or stay in the express lane.

Does anyone remember a story probably about a year ago where the license plates were stolen from one of those automated radar vans (the ones they park on the side of the road and take a picture of your plates if youre speeding in work zones)? The thieves sped past the van multiple times with the van's own plates attached to this vehicle, thus giving a ticket to the very van that was handing them out.

That's not smart. If they get caught, it's their ass getting burned.

Another Speed Trap

For anyone in the Vernon Hills area. At the Shell gas station on Milwaukee Ave (Ernies Shell-across from Mobil) there were about 4 squad cars in there by the exit this morning and 2 more I saw coming that way. That little strip is tricky because it's about 35 mph up until that gas station then it's 45 mph.

Be careful and ride safe!
