Hwy 285 between Poncha Springs & Buena Vista

Salida, ColoradoDec 18, 20091 Comments

The posted speed limit for this road is 60 with the intent of ticketing drivers who set their cruise at 70. Most of the time there are 2 State Patrolman patrolling the hwy, and with frequent turns and hills, they are hard to spot.

The identification of this area as a trap is just plain misleading. It is a high accident area and is targeted for enforcement, but its not a trap. The comment that there are two patrollman on it all the time is nonsense. The State Patrol does have two troopers on at the same time unless it is a high volume weekend such as 4th of July. The troop office for this district only has 7 troopers for highway 50, 285 and 24 to cover all shifts, days of the week and weekends. The sheriff's office usually only has 2 or 3 deputies on for an entire 1100 square mile county, this includes covering calls, county roads, unincorporated communities and back country. So you got a ticket....get over it.
