CLEVELAND, Ohio — Featured on one of the latest This American Life podcasts is the infamousLinndale speed trap and Producer Sean Cole laments what over many drivers in Northeast Ohio have experienced — a traffic ticket from a diminutive stretch of highway just outside of Cleveland.

The Linndale portion, called “The Most Expected Delay in Northern Ohio,” starts at 11:59 mark. Listen to it here.

“Linndale has always been the burr up somebody’s ass, ever since I can remember,” former Linndale mayor Mike Toczek says in the episode called “Expect Delays.”

The portion of I-71 that’s in the tiny Village of Linndale, is 400 yards long and takes less than half a minute to drive it.

“For decades, it’s been the most aggressively policed stretch of I-71 around,” Producer Sean Cole said.

The village has 179 people, 35 houses and 11 businesses and almost a million dollars in speeding violations.
