Interstate 57 in Illinois,  Mile Marker IL 9.
Reported 1999, confirmed Feb 28, 2001

John reports: Bear is working both sides of the highway and picks his next victim while writing another ticket.  He hangs a radical U-turn and chases down victim No. 2.  John claims Bear did not have time to use his radar and may be using visual only.

Chuck reports: there is 1 car using radar and 5 cars chasing speeders.

Robert reports: that the speed limit drops from 70 MPH in Missouri to 65 MPH in Illinois and Bear is making a killing

Lynn reports: "First/or/ Last  9 miles of Interstate 57 in Illinois near  Missouri/Illinois state line.  Continuous city police, county and state radar units.  Tickets being issued to non-speeders. Often 5 or 6  radar units within 3 miles of each other. Revenue grabbing scam."

J.C. reports: "Construction zone.  Speed limit 65 drops to 55, then to 45. Two sheriff squads working area stopping southbound traffic. Used one radar sighting to stop 2 vehicles; 2nd squad stopped 3rd vehicle. Court appearance required for 10 miles over."

Dick Reports: "Single bear works both sides of the road just north of the state line. Pulaski County sets up multiple car operation between state line and Marion, Il."

This is just north of the Stateline and there are many reasons why you will find Bear here including drug interdiction programs stemming the flow of drugs into Illinois.
