Riggs Road near Interstate I 10

Sun Lakes, ArizonaOct 21, 20072 Comments

State police, and sometimes Maricopa County police, hide in the unpaved extension of Price Road south of Riggs, a mile east of the I-10 intersection. The speed limit here is an unbelievably stupid 45 MPH (absolutely straight highway, no crossings or buildings in sight, perfect visability. Traffic is usually moving at about 65 MPH, picking up speed after leaving vicinity of Sun Lakes, though a few idiots do travel much faster. But the cops don’t care who they ticket, as long as they make their quota, I guess.

This is a speed trap but I don't think you'll ever see state police (in Arizona they are Department of Public Safety or DPS). This area is usually patrolled by Maricopa County Sheriff's Dept. or the Indian Police because the barren stretch in on the reservation. I agree that 45 mph is a silly speed limit. Just keep your eyes open!

At Price road the sheriff runs radar, but further west before hwy 10 the Gila reservation police run radar by a utility fenced area. All the reservations have ridiculously slow limits unless your on an express route.
