Chinle, Arizona Speed Traps
I was issued a citation by a Sheriff’s deputy for passing in a no passing zone. The facts are, I was going 60 mph (5 mph under the speed limit) and was passed by three Arizona tagged pickups, the last of which was clearly in a no passing zone on a 90 degree curve. Two miles later I overtook a car going about 50 mph. There was no yellow center line. I completed passing the slower car and pulled back into the right lane just before a no passing zone started. The officer came from four cars back and pulled me over. He said he was issuing a citation for passing in a no passing zone. I explained my viewpoint. He was intimidating and threatened me saying “if I disagreed I could go back and take it up with the court”. Funny, Arizona tag illegal pass, no action. Ohio tags , citation.
