Washington Terrace, Utah Speed Traps
In the parking lot of Victory Park, which exists where the old city administration building used to be, is where the county sheriffs sit in their vehicle. If you are heading eastbound on 4400 S., the sheriff is hidden from view on this 25 mph road, which looks more like a 30 mph road.
A sheriff is very often sitting at the mechanics place on 300 W. monitoring your speed going east or west on 4400 S. The posted speed is 25 mph but is a major route from Hwy. 89 to Riverdale or Roy. I’ve lived just off 4400 S. for over 20 years and I know this as a fact. Luckily, I’ve only received one ticket, but have seen many other people getting one.
This is actually a "city-wide" speed trap. Laker Way is one of the more predominantly used roads in and out of Washington Terrace but has a posted speed limit of 25. A limit usually reserved for residential side streets. The officers are usually semi-hidden way back in the Southeast corner of the high school parking lot. And sometimes in the Methodist church parking lot on the same road. 30 Mph is the posted speed limit throughout most of the main thoroughfares this little township.
You come up a hill and it has one speed limit sign that if you don’t see. you will never see again. You’re going up a big hill you need to get speed to go. As you come around the bend and start to slow down he already has you in a parking lot on the right hand side at the top of the hill before the gas station!
