State Highway 285 near Crow Hill

Bailey, ColoradoMay 24, 20074 Comments

4 County deputy sheriffs and 2 state trooper routinely work this stretch of highway on the weekends, and weekdays.
They usually are hidden on sharp curves or hill crests as you enter the Bailey area.

I'd suspect the 5 "no" votes are from the sherriff's office and the Colorado State Patrol. The Bailey CSP post is well-known locally for internal strife, so don't expect sympathy if you're stopped.

Going south the 55 mph limit becomes 40 (with a small sign) about half way down the hill. Cops generally sit on the north bound side just north of the bottom of the hill.

Actually, at the top of Crow Hill the speed limit changes to 50, then farther down the hill it becomes 40, all through Bailey and out the other side. Watch out through this entire stretch of highway.

I've gotten two speeding tickets going through Bailey. One going down the hill and into Bailey, the other coming in from the other direction (north west). If you're willing to fight it you generally get a good deal. The 1st one I got from a Park County Sheriff. He never showed and my ticket was dismissed. The second was from a State Patrol. Those guys get overtime pay to go to court and he showed up. I changed my plea to guilty and the fine was reduced significantly by the judge. The drag is that you have to go all the way to the town of Fairplay where the county courthouse is.
