Taylorsville, Utah Speed Traps
This stretch of road has no speed limit signs posting what the speed is, and lots of convenient side streets and parking lots for cops to hide in.
The motorcycle cop parks on the median on east side of the road. I was driving northbound and coming to a stop at the traffic lights at the Shopko parking lot access, when I noticed he was behind me. He ticketed me for driving 5 miles over the limit. The $95 fine seems excessive: $50 for going 1-10 mph over the limit, plus a $40 "secondary surcharge" for who knows what, plus a $5 convenience fee for paying online. What a nifty source of revenue. Boo, Taylorsville!
Cops park on side streets watching cars. I’ve been pulled over once and seen them more than once. The cop that pulled me over told me that the city council asked them to monitor that area due to speeding problems.
Taylorsville City Police department is all over this road, almost daily. They don’t hide out, but they get you before you see them!
Cop will park in Walmart’s rear parking lot and get drivers heading east or west on 5600 South
