Tooele, Utah Speed Traps
Actually, this eight mile stretch from the end of Johnson’s pass to the Dugway gate is usually not patrolled, but, at least three times a year, a massive campaign is organized by the UHP and the Tooele County Sheriff. In the early AM when multitudes of employees are arriving to enter Dugway’s main gate, at least 10 UHP officers will be waiting to ticket you. The speed limit is 60 mph on this stretch of two lane blacktop. They can remain until after dusk and ticket Dugway employees going home. This campaign stretches out to Rt. 36, through Rush Valley, and there are multiple hiding spots for police to hide. A radar detector is a mandatory equipment traveling these roads.
The patrolman will sit at the bottom of the North side of the overpass and radar cars leaving the city. This one is especially nasty considering the speed limit is 50 mph heading South and 40 mph heading North on the same section of road between 1450 N and 2400 N.
The speed limit is 35 mph at this location and there is a slight curve in the road. The officers will park with their lights off next to some large blue recycling dumpsters watching for drivers that come around the curve over 35.
The HP will sit with his lights out near the shoulder in a turn out in the darkest point between Home depot and the new nursery in Erda
