University Heights is a suburb completely surrounded by Iowa City and has acquired quite a reputation among local motorists. Melrose Avenue is the main thoroughfare and slopes, allowing motorists to easily pick up a good amount of speed and pass over the 25 mph limit. The town seems to get a lot of income through its disproportionately-large police force.

University Heights begins at the bridge by the stadium on the east and continues until Melrose widens to 4 lanes on the west. The town has fewer than 1000 residents and writes about 1600 tickets per year.

University Heights is a town that is bound on all sides by Iowa City. A main artery feeding the University Hospitals from the interstate, Melrose Avenue, drops it’s speed limit from 35 to 25 while travelling through this "town". A long, sloping hill entraps unknowing vehicles on this road. Tickets are issued at 1 mph over the limit. A very large officer sits in his car all day issuing tickets. A true speed trap in all senses of the phrase!
