Yea they are pretty sneaky. I remember seeing a F-body leaving the Naperville Police station on my way to work following marked cars. Also saw a Camaro that pulled over a car a few years ago on Rt34 near Oswego.

I allways keep my eyes peeled now. Used to just have to look for squad cars, but now you never know.

State Police have had Mustangs, T/A's and Camaro's for several years now, and a lot of other towns and counties are doing the same thing.

The next 5 cop cars for Geneva are going to be black Hemi powered "police package" chargers. No overhead lights outside of the car at all. Even the Geneve police decals are a weird flat black that are reflective. So talk about stealthy. You would never see them or be able to pick them out even from 50 FT. Sneaky. Take a good long look at the next black Charger that pulls up to the line next to you at the light, then once you are convinced its not a cop and your about to drop the clutch @ 4,500 rpm. STOP ! take another good look.

I can confirm seeing all the above at/hear the same location. I even thought the GTP was trying to race me when I had my SHO....lucky for me I only got a warning that time :nono:

Maybe we should just list all the UC cars that you have seen so everyone knows not to race them. I havent seen many, and i always look for the crown vic style headlights. I know mount prospect has a few, but theyre all different color crownies, Otherwise on I-80, ive seen a green camaro pre-98, and a white mustang gt on 53.

There's a blue '98 Mustang GT running around the Rt 53 and 290 area. I spotted him turning onto Rt 72 a few times in the morning from a side street, only way to see he's a cop is the State Police plates (unless the strobes are flashing, by then you're screwed). It has dark tinted windows in back and a few little antennas. Other than that, looks like a normal 'stang.

Many departments are renting vehicles from places like Enterprise and putting strobes inside since it's easy and can be done non-permanently.

That way people can't learn the undercover vehicles, since they change every week or couple weeks.

I have seen state troopers in a basic work-type panel van in Ottawa.

I have also seen Ottawa coppers in a Jeep Cherokee.

I have seen a ford escort in the city that had hidden lights, wonder if he could catch me? :p
I have also seen dodge intrepids around nw Indiana, and i can remember the time i got a ticket from a cop because i had never seen a dark brown police cruiser, by the time i did notice it was a cop he had me on radar.

Photo-enforcement vans roam the Ryan

By Jon Hilkevitch
Tribune transportation reporter
Published May 22, 2006, 12:34 PM CDT


Speeders on the Dan Ryan Expressway who are nabbed by photo-enforcement vans that rolled out this weekend will start receiving $375 tickets in the mail in the next two weeks, IDOT and state police officials said today.

As the eighth week of the Ryan project begins, the Illinois State Police is putting the radar vans in the construction zones. A total of 250 violators were caught in just 2½ hours when the radar-enforcement program began Saturday.

But there appears to be some question about whether the courts will honor the citations.

Officials have held meetings with the chief judges in Cook County to ensure that the photo-enforcement ticket won't be thrown out in court, said IDOT Secretary Timothy Martin at an update on the Ryan construction project.

"We are hopeful these tickets will be upheld," he said.

The photo-enforcement vans take a picture of the driver and the car's rear license plate. The tickets mailed to violators will include copies of the two photos as well as the speed the car was going at the time.

The vans can record the speed of a car from 180 feet away.

The penalties for a second violation are a $1,000 fine and a 90-day driver's license suspension.

In addition to the Ryan, vans have been put on the Kingery Expressway, the Illinois tollway system and Downstate, IDOT officials said.

Martin said drivers also are abandoning alternative routes, such as Ashland and Stony Island Avenues, and returning to the Ryan.

"People are falling back into their old habits," he said.

Weekday travel times have been as high as 40 minutes on the inbound Ryan at 5:30 a.m., he said.

The speed limit in the Ryan construction zone is 45 m.p.h. It is in effect 24 hours a day, but the photo-enforcement vans are being used only when workers are present.

"Speed in construction zones is one of the primary reasons people are killed," Martin said.

State police officials also unveiled motorcycles that will be used to enforce speed limits and stop aggressive drivers on the Ryan and toll roads.

Since the Ryan project began April 1, about 5,000 speeding citations have been issued, said State Police Capt. Peter Negro.
