Huron River Dr., near Huron River bridge
One of Scio Township’s major revenue generators is Huron River Dr., with its numerous curves and grade changes, difficult to hold a steady speed. The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department has a spot that is used just about daily to hand out a steady stream of tickets. Parked well in the bushes considerably off the road’s shoulder on the north side of Huron River Dr., about 0.1 mile east of the bridge, watch out for a white Crown Vic. or the real sleeper, a white Ford Econoline. Expect to get hit with a burst of K or Ka-band radar. After the deputy takes the speed reading, he/she swings out of the bushes to chase their prey for a hefty contribution to the township and county.
