Apache Junction, Arizona Speed Traps
There are usually 3, but always 2 AZ.Highway Patrolmen,and a Pinal County Deputy working the area between Gold Canyon and Florence Junction. This is straight road, usually moderate traffic. Why this warrants so many patrolmen, I don’t understand? If they want to catch real speed nuts they should be working the 101, or US60, between Mesa Drive and Dobson, I see speeders driving at least 90 mph, tailgaters, crazies, etc. The only time you will see a patrolman in those areas is in response to an accident.
A dark blue unmarked sedan sits between the divided highway on the small hill as drivers come in from Mesa/AJ and usually has the radar on. Sometimes it is on POP mode while others it is laser. He drives back and forth between Superstition Mtn Dr (Bashas) and past Peralta Trails (past Walgreens). US 60 between Mt View Rd. and Superstition Mtn Dr (Basha’s)
A.J. police car regularly parks back in the vacant lot in the SE corner of Idaho Road and Broadway road, watching for speeders. Site often used after dark.
Cruiser parked in empty lot on Superstition near Tomahawk. Light enforcement usually late at night.
White Photo Radar van parked on the east side of Mountain View can be anywhere from just northof US60 to just south of Broadway Avenue. It’s the same van that someone reported as being on Broadway Avenue. The locations are alternated. Both are speed traps for the unwary.
