Monticello, Utah Speed Traps
The entire city of Monticello is a speed trap as another person wrote. But then as you leave town toward Colorado on the 491 all the way. All the truckers know this, making it increasingly frustrating because you get stuck behind one going under speed.
Monticello is a pretty little town of less than 2000 people. Driving through I witnessed three police cruisers having stopped cars within a mile of each other. I must say that they were all beautiful new white 4WD SUVs, the best money can buy. Don’t contribute to the next one…avoid this town or slow it down.
South end of town you go down a small hill then up another hill before you’re out of town. You feel like you’re out of town when you start down the hill. The town cop lights you up right at the bottom of the hill as you start to speed up. You are only about 100 yards from being out of town. I will never stop for gas, stay or eat there again. The town might think they generating revenue but its at a cost to the business owners of Monticello.
2 N miles out of the city its open country there is a rise in the road. He was at the bottom of the hill. 45mph in 30 m zone. $115
Driving north on 191, appeared to be out of town, speed increased from 30 to 40. Got nabbed at 40 mile sign for speeding up 20 feet too early.
