400 West from 600 North to 200 North near WEST high school.

This one’s been posted before but incorrectly named. 2-3 motor squad units and occasionally 1-2 police cars, especially in the afternoons and early evenings when there’s an event at the EnergySolutions Arena. Posted limit is 30 MPH. I’ve lived in the area for 30+ years and the speed limit on 400 West was 40 MPH until late 2001 when the new I-15 600 North offramp onto 400 West was completed. The speed limit remains 40 MPH north of the offramp where there’s very little traffic. This is a high crime area and the city should be using dept. resources to fight personal and property crime in the area rather than running a speed trap.

Speed trap? Not sure. The speed limit IS 30 MPH even though the road is 5 lanes wide which would suggest 35-40 anywhere else. BUT West High is right there and people regularly are driving too fast past a school where students are crossing, etc. FYI West High has 2,700 students so I think 30 MPH is reasonable. 300 West is 35 MPH. Hope this is helpful.
