Speeders, they’re all over

The Park City Police Department in recent weeks, as nicer weather has settled in after a snowy winter, has widened its traffic patrols. Police officers have pulled over numerous drivers who the police say were speeding. Speeders have long upset Parkites, and people generally support the Police Department’s efforts. Some of the recent cases, culled from the department’s public logs, include:

On May 24 an officer caught someone driving at 54 mph at the Kearns Boulevard-Comstock Drive intersection. The speed limit there is 35 mph, the police say.

On May 19 the police stopped someone at the Bonanza Drive-Iron Horse Drive intersection. The person was caught driving 58 mph in a 40 mph zone. It is unclear from the logs where the officer observed the 58 mph. The intersection is not a 40 mph zone, but that is the sped limit nearby.

On May 19 an officer wrote a driver a ticket for 40 mph in a 25 mph zone on Deer Valley Drive.

On April 28 an officer pulled someone over after catching the person driving 64 mph in a 35 mph zone at the Kearns Boulevard-Bonanza Drive intersection.
