Be careful on highway in and out of town and all through.
Unfortunately, I have to travel through Blanding and Monticello a lot. I know better than to speed and do 5 MPH under before through and after the towns. Despite that, they will pull you over for any excuse they can make up to pull you over and harass you. Never ever stop in Blanding. I NEVER speed but have been pulled over for supposedly turning into the wrong lane from the main intersection in town. Problem is, I didn’t do what I was accused. Only reason I didn’t get a bogus ticket was because I had a witness in car. I strongly suggest you have a dash cam when driving through Blanding or Monticello. The cop was paranoid and abusive. I honestly believe that cop was intoxicated and we were potentially in danger. He used the situation to interrogate me aggressively for no cause to do his best to escalate the encounter. I didn’t take the bait and remained calm and cooperative within reason. Whatever happens, speak as little as possible and be polite. Watch more than just speed driving through there, they will pull you over for the slightest issue (real or one they made up) and will take extra steps to abuse you if you have out of state plates or if they think you are a tourist in a 4×4.
