Goodyear, Arizona Speed Traps
N Bullard Ave between Encanto Blvd and Earll Drive
Going north on Bullard Ave with a speed limit of 45 mph, the road goes up a small hill over a canal on the way to Indian School Rd. At the top of that hill, the speed limit changes to 35 mph. Between the northbound and southbound sides of the road is a large median, where a police car has started occasionally parking late at night. It’s not every night, but I’ve seen it on at least three or four separate nights. Once, I forgot to start slowing down until a bit later when the police car was there, and shortly after I started braking, the police car’s lights turned on, but they didn’t follow me or pull me over, I guess because they noticed I was just a little late to slow down.
Indian school rd and sarival rd
Just before the road goes from 2 lanes to 6 eastbound the speed limit drops to 45 mph he will be sitting in a driveway to a r.v. park on the right just before sarival. You see him it’s too late.
144th ave and Thomas rd
Be careful going around the corners on 144th ave Goodyear cops sit at the field on the corner by Thomas rd speed limit 30 mph. Will flash his lights at you also sits in the parking lot entrance before Litchfield rd.
Thomas rd between dysart and litchfield
Watch your speed on Thomas rd he usually parks near Palm valley elementary and Estrella mtn c.c. very easy to speed down thomas. This is a hot spot.
Bullard and Van Buren
Goodyear has a motorcycle patrol. The patrolman is stopped on Bullard facing north waiting for the light. His eyes are looking north to give the impression he is waiting for the light. He actually has his radar facing west to catch speeder eastbound on Van Buren trying to make the green light. The patrolman has also had similar setups on other intersections.
