North & Southbound 191 a mile out of town either direction
Heading south on 191 from Moab to Monticello is beautiful but all hell breaks loose as you drive toward or away from Monticello. Speed limit coming into town 65 to 55 (mile from town) then down to 40 (few blocks from town) to 30 while driving through town – same in reverse as you leave town (southbound) from 30 to 40 then by the golf course 55 then drive another mile and half (100% rural country) past mile marker 70 is where the radar cop sits – – just 2 blocks from there is the 65 mph sign. Now, it is good to know that the radar catches ‘off guard’ speeders heading northbound as well, because the speed goes from 65 to 55. The two parallel speed limit signs – one says 55 (NB) and the other says 65 (SB). No wonder my Waze GPS said the speed was 65. I ended up with two citations; a 70/55 and no seatbelt; even though the officer say the seatbelt strapped on my lap. I removed the shoulder part to reach to get registration and insurance paperwork out of the glove compartment. So keep your seatbelt in place if you get stopped. One more thing, the day of my appearance in court the judge had 41 cases, yes 41 in one day and 20 of the cases involved possession of controlled substance marijuana/spice – use or possession of drug paraphernalia. WTH? So if you’ll be going through Monticello, leave certain items at home.
