Aggressive drivers reported on S.R. 224
The Park City Police Department in one day last week received at least three complaints of aggressive drivers, something that is only occasionally reported in Park City.
The cases were logged on Thursday, April 18, and two of them were reported within two hours of each other.
In one of the cases, reported at 4:42 p.m. on April 18 on S.R. 224, the police were told that one of the drivers attempted to run the other one off the road. The driver who contacted the police told the authorities the other one was unable to remain in one lane.
In another case that day, logged at 2:54 p.m. on S.R. 224, the police were informed that a driver seemed to be aggressive and was cutting other vehicles off.
Earlier in the day, at 1:08 p.m., the police were told a person was driving recklessly on S.R. 224, almost causing an accident.
Public police logs did not provide details about the cases.
The Police Department, meanwhile, conducted numerous traffic stops last week, including a string of them on Sunday. The stops stretched through much of the day on Sunday, and they included clusters in the 10 p.m. hour and the 2 p.m. hour.
Some of the traffic stops were at the intersection of Bonanza Drive and Deer Valley Drive while others were along S.R. 224. In one of the cases, a police officer pulled over a driver on the 1700 block of Kearns Boulevard at 9:41 p.m. The officer warned the driver verbally after pulling the person over for driving 53 mph in a location where the posted speed limit is 35 mph, according to police logs.
