Officers write lots of speeding tickets along Kearns Boulevard
The Park City Police Department appeared to increase its traffic patrols on Sunday, Oct. 1, writing tickets to drivers on roads through much of the city.
According to the Police Department, at least 11 speeding tickets were issued between about 9:45 a.m. and a little after 1 p.m.
Officers pulled over drivers at spots like the intersection of Kearns Boulevard and Comstock Drive, the intersection of Kearns Boulevard and Buffalo Bill Drive and the intersection of Marsac Avenue and Hillside Avenue.
The officers were especially aggressive at the Kearns Boulevard-Buffalo Bill Drive intersection, where at least five drivers were ticketed.
The Police Department frequently patrols for speeders, but the Sunday patrol seems especially aggressive.
Parkites frequently complain about speeding drivers and the patrols usually are supported by neighbors.
