Scottsdale, Arizona Speed Traps
Red light and speed Camera located southbound on Pima at Pinnacle Peak Road(limit 50). Speed Cameras located both north and southbound between Hualapai and Union Hills (limit 45). 11+ over is ticketed. Be extra cautious at night when passing the cameras between Union Hills and Hualapai. While gliding around the curve it flashes like a bolt of lightning in your eyes and could blind you for a few seconds. I hope that $200 of revenue is worth someone having a fatal accident to you Scottsdale DPS.
Speed cameras located, both directions, of Union Hills Drive Light, and just south of Hualapai Drive Light as you edge around the long slight curve . Speed limit is 45 and the camera will snap you at 56+. It is a six lane newly designed parkway that you can safely go 60 even 70 mph on. Be extra carefull when headed south on Pima because just before Hualapai, the limit drops from 50 to 45.
N. 70th St. is a side street off of Shea Blvd. that turns into Mountain View Rd. as you approach Scottsdale Rd. The cops put an unmanned police car in the corner of the parking lot of E. Gold Dust Ave. and N. 70th St. then sit in the Chaparral High School parking lot and use radar guns to clock east bound traffic as it heads south on N. 70th St. I got ticketed by a motorcycle cop and witnessed another motorist get ticketed by a patrol car. This is a sneaky move because N. 70th St./Mountain View Rd. and E. Gold Dust Ave./74th St. are all advertised as alternative routes to get through the extremely busy Scottsdale Rd. and Shea Blvd. intersection!
East on Lone Mountain almost to Pima Rd. They have errected a “fake” 15 ft Suaguro catus with camera’s in it on the south side of the road. It has electrical boxes surrounding it. Not sure if its up and running as of yet. But sure it will be going soon.
Typically the police vehicle will shoot radar at Southbound traffic while tucked in under the power lines opposite the nursery at any time of day or night. Northbound traffic is targeted from the ‘Desert Scenic Drive" turnout a little further North of the nursery predominately at night – especiallly late, like after 10:00 p.m. Radar detectors always work on this stretch. Check Google maps for exact locations.
