Buckeye, Arizona Speed Traps
Often a police van and an undercover black mustang are hiding behind houses or foliage pulling over student leaving school through the neighborhood to avoid ten minutes of traffic for going as little as five over. These officers issue no warnings and usually only patrol before and after school.
Specially during the weekends and late nights, Police in a motorcycle hide behind the building around Main Street and Verrado Way, he looks for everything, seat belts, turns, speed, if you are off one second on the stop sign, He will give you a ticket with a nice comment: this is not California.
He also hide during the morning at Jackrabbit Rd. going South towards to I-10- He is rude and arrogant, usually is not reason at all for the ticket, just because he said so, People in Verrado is aware of this unusual situation at the point texts go around to prevent people when he is around.
Its a four way stop and you think the police are there pausing for the stop sign. They’re posted there to pull you over for minor traffic violations like not wearing a seat belt. There are not signs clearly marked with speed limits. Its 25MP on a rural road. If you’re caught going 27MPH without a seat belt, Buckeye PD will give you a hefty fine. 210 dollars. So watch out.
Going North on Airport Road from the intersection of Yuma and Airport is a 50mph zone on a 2 lane road for 3/4 of a mile and then 3 lanes for 1/4 of mile to I-10.
At that stage where it transitions on the West side is a fence with slots and parking area where police cars can point to the Northbound traffic with radar.
And there is enough of a slight rise to hide the police car in the median so the Northbound traffic cannot see them till they are on top of them. Both going North.
There is a retail area on the Southwest corner where Dean Rd northbound ends at Yuma. At times an officer is seen in the parking lot in the morning. You ignore because it looks like a parked car in the lot. Morning traffic going East on Yuma are usually blinded by the sunrise and the speed limit jumps from 30 to 40 to 50mph in 2 miles.
