Mayer, AZ on Highway 69

Mayer, ArizonaMay 06, 20110 Comments

On Highway 69 between Phoenix and Prescott, Arizona there is a little town called Mayer. The speed limit on 69 is 65mph. Just out side of Mayer AZ the speed reduces to 55mph and then again to 50mph. I’d say the 2 speed limit signs are with in 500 yards of each other. It stays 50mph for about a half mile and the resumes to 65mph. When I got pulled over I had the cruise control set at 70mph, 5 over the 65. I had a few people in the car with me and we were talking so I didn’t see the 55mph sign. I saw a DPS car passing us in the opposite direction but slowing rapidly and cutting though the median. When I looked back to the road ahead of me there was the 50mph sigh that I had not even passed yet. I slowed down and moved over to the right lane because I knew he was going to pull me over. When he lit me up I promptly pulled off and stopped. When he approached the car, we greeted him and informed him of the 2 concealed carry weapons in the vehicle. He then said he had pulled me over for my speed and I told him that I had not noticed the speed limit change until the very moment after I saw him turning around. He then went to his car with my guns and took forever coming back. When he came back he gave me a ticket for 72mph in a 55mph and told me he did me a favor. He said he could have written for 72mph in a 50mph which would have been criminal. But remember, I had not yet passed the 50mph sign when I saw him and slowed down. So I’m not sure why he thinks I was doing 72mph in a 50mph. What really hacks me off about it was we were polite and respectful, disclosed the weapons honestly did not see the speed change and in my everyday driving I never do more than 5 over, always make sure my all of my light are working on my vehicle, I try to follow all of the traffic laws here in AZ to best of my knowledge. I have no tickets in 12 years, no accidents in 20 and still, I got a ticket. I have 2 close friends in the DPS and know another guy that I used to work with that went to the DPS so I have nothing against the Department of Public Safety, but this guy was a dick! So please be very careful going though Mayer, AZ.

State Highway 69 North/South near Mayer, Business Crossing

Speed limit drops quickly to 45 due to highway business crossing, and it is reasonable for the situation. Many people roar through at 65 – 70 and get lucky. Not a deliberate speed trap per se, but easy to miss if one is distracted, e.g. talking or daydreaming. Both AZ highway patrol and Yavapai Sheriff patrol enforce vigorously when present.
