Park City police stop drivers well above speed limit

Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department last week stopped drivers clocked at well above the posted speed limit, part of the department’s long-running efforts to combat speeding drivers and other violators.

One of the cases, on Saturday, May 23 at 1:43 p.m., involved a driver pulled over at 74 mph in a 55 mph zone along S.R. 224, the police said.

The day before, Friday, May 22, a driver was stopped on the 1100 block of Deer Valley Drive. The police said the vehicle was clocked at 76 mph in a 55 mph zone along the S.R. 224 entryway.

Also on May 22, at 6:54 p.m., a driver was stopped on the 1700 block of Park Avenue after an officer clocked the vehicle at 50 mph on a section of road, apparently on Kearns Boulevard, where the speed limit is 35 mph. The driver indicated they were late for a movie, the police said.

The Police Department last week also logged a series of suspected drunken driving cases. They included:

  • on Saturday, May 23 at 9:47 p.m., a suspected drunken driving case was logged on the 500 block of Deer Valley Drive. Public police logs did not provide details.
  • on May 23, a suspected drunken driving case was reported at 12:23 a.m. in the Rossi Hill neighborhood, which is off Deer Valley Drive.
  • on Friday, May 22, a police officer assisted the Utah Highway Patrol with a traffic stop involving a suspected drunken driver on Park Avenue. The officer helped a passenger get a taxi, the police said.
