Alt. US Hwy 89 near Jacob Lake

Fredonia, ArizonaSep 24, 20020 Comments

This is a trap on the climb up to the Coconino Plateau which is the access to the north rim of Grand Canyon. The road is narrow (9′ lanes!) with hairpin turns, no shoulders and dramatic cliff drop-offs. I was cited for veering into the other lane (not speeding). I knew it was a trap when included with the ticket was information about how to pay if you are returning to a foreign country. (A lot of foreign tourists visit the Grand Canyon, of course, and I myself was a day’s drive from my home). I saw three other patrollman that day all the way into Fredonia. This trap must support the entire county. Best advice: avoid the entire "Arizona Strip", which is that part of Arizona north of the Grand Canyon.
