Chicago, Illinois Roadblocks
Was going north and spotted the checkpoint around 1130pm on 7/4/2016
Roadblock conducted by Illinois State Police on the 87th Exit of the Dan Ryan Interstate in Chicago.
Happened on Friday April 29th, yesterday, at about 8:45pm for me. They asked for license and insurance. Insurance was in the back so they didn’t make me look. Questioned why I had a DUP license but took my word that I had lost my original. So, fairly lenient I suppose. First time I have personally seen this in Chicago. Do not know if they are there again tonight.
Roadside Safety Check: Traffic reduced to right lane only. Temporary STOP sign set up at entrance to Humboldt Park. Officer randomly diverts, or picks and chooses at will. If selected, pull into entrance on right. Looking for DUIs, seatbelt, suspended license, insurance, equipment violations. Basically a “Ticketmaster”. Cops relatively cool, let me go after drunk check and show license and insurance
in the area of W 53rd St & S Halsted St.
