Officers conduct heavy round of traffic patrols on Saturday

The Park City Police Department last week continued its widespread traffic patrols of recent weeks, with the officers being especially busy on Saturday, police logs showed.

The traffic patrols have been aggressive at certain times this spring. The patrols on Saturday were noteworthy from the early evening to the nighttime, with the officers stopping drivers every few minutes at some points. The traffic stops were largely grouped in several areas.

Public police logs did not provide details, including what prompted the officer to pull the driver over.

Some of the traffic stops on Saturday included:

  • at 5:36 p.m. on S.R. 224
  • at 7:19 p.m. on Holiday Ranch Loop Road
  • at 9:14 p.m. on the 700 block of Park Avenue
  • at 9:22 p.m. at the intersection of Park Avenue and Kearns Boulevard
  • at 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Deer Valley Drive and Main Street
  • at 10:31 p.m. at the Kearns Boulevard-Comstock Drive intersection
  • at 11:02 p.m. on Bonanza Drive in the Iron Horse district
  • at 11:14 p.m. on S.R. 224

    Speeding and other moving violations have long spurred complaints from Parkites, and police officers regularly conduct traffic patrols when they are not responding to a call.
