ISP tickets in Woodstock today
February 28, 2011
Why were three troopers of the Illinois State Police working in Woodstock this afternoon?
Two of them were stopped with a single vehicle on Route 47 across from McDonald's, and four unhappy campers were sitting on the curb. A few minutes later they were in the back seats of the two squad cars, and my guess is their car was getting ready to be towed.
A third ISP squad car had a driver stopped on Lake Avenue across from Days Inn, just west of Route 47.
Is there a particular reason that three ISP cars were writing tickets in Woodstock today, rather than out patrolling the highways of McHenry County?
Did Woodstock P.D. invite them? Did Woodstock P.D. even know they were in town? Do Woodstock residents want ISP troopers coming into town and increasing the number of tickets written here? We're still a small town here, but we have City Limits and we, the People, can make the rules.
Is the traffic violations problem so bad here that Woodstock P.D. can't handle it?
