Joliet, Illinois Roadblocks
Called it a "safety check", but asked for driver’s license and proof of insurance. Was issued a ticket for expired insurance card.
Set up in black/hispanic areas.
Memorial day weekend is always a big weekend for stepped up police presense. IL State troopers are positioned at the northbound and southbound I-55 onramps at the Rt 30 intersection near the Joliet mall. Police are positioned in a way to view into your vehicle before you enter the highway and are everyone regularly to inspect license, insurance, etc. You will certainly be flagged for driving without wearing a seatbelt. I passed this at approx. 1pm on May 22nd, 2009.
Occurred on August 31st at 11PM.
All cars were stopped and directed into a closed restraunt where serarches were being performed this is happening more frequently especially durring the holidays. This is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen on Memorial Day extensive stops and serches were being performed at this roadblock the very day that our troops fought over seas to keep this very thing from happening here PAPERS PLEASE.
