Midvale, Utah Speed Traps
If you are heading from 9000 S. traveling Northbound you will head up a hill leaving Sandy and arriving in Midvale. Do not drive above 30 MPH because there is a young cop who uses this stretch to meet his quota. He will wait just across the city line and pulls people over for as little as 2 MPH over. Remember, Midvale city is full of dirty cops so don’t tempt them.
Midvale and West jordan Police sit on the West Jordan side (Right next to Gardner Village) on the west side of the bridge in the little parking lot to the west of the building(Gardner Village). If you are coming from Midvale to West Jordan the Midvale officers make a easy target out of you because the speed limit changes right there and you are going down hill. I didn’t even have my foot on the gas and got a ticket for 7 miles over the limit. I have seen them there on a daily bases and always see some one pulled over between the hours of 5pm and 7pm
Between 64th south and Ft Union on 7th east a Cop always hides behine a fence on a side street at 6850 south and nails anyone who exceeds the 30 mph speed limit on this straight stretch of road.
They will sit on the east side of 10th east at the LDS seminary or south one road. Mostly during the hours 9-5. Midvale Car or Motorcycle. Speed limit is 30 MPH on 10th east
Not per se a speed trap, but a trap nonetheless. Going eastbound on Fort Union and turning right (into the parking lot for Chili’s) there are two signs – which I found easy to miss – stating “No Right Turn on Red Light.” Why? I don’t know.
But if you accidentally, or not, turn on red a cop parked next to the Blockbuster will most likely follow you and ticket you.
