Just south of Kanab, Utah on Hwy 89
I was heading north on Hwy. 89 about 5 miles south of Kanab, Utah heading into town. I was doing 73 (cruise control) in a 65 speed limit zone. I noticed a police car going in the opposite direction. I reset the cruise control down to 70. Sure enough, several minutes later, I was being pulled over, the officer claimed, for doing 77 and then 76 on his radar detector. I explained to him that his radar/laser detector was not calibrated correctly because my rented 2013 car’s cruise control lined up precisely with the speed indicators on the side of the road in several locations on our vacation. He claimed 70 was still speeding. These Utah cops WILL give you a ticket, (sadly enough) for doing 5 MPH over the speed limit. As a matter of fact HWY. 89 from the Arizona/ Utah border all the way north up to Panguitch (near Bryce Canyon) and Circleville and further north of that is ONE BIG SPEED TRAP that PREYS on Tourists driving as little as 5 MPH over the speed limit. I think there should be a National Cop Hall of Fame (or Shame) erected in this area. I don’t think these officers know a damn thing about fighting real crime, but they sure know how to harrass the heck out of tourists and make alot of money in the process!
