Sultan, Washington Speed Traps
The Sultan revenue seekers will be found anywhere with the city limits that stretch far beyond what you would think. I boycott this town as well as the two towns to the east, Startup and Goldbar, that are almost as bad. Set your cruise control going thru these towns and don’t stop to shop.
Sultan officer parks in the Chevron station on the passing lane east of town. People want to get by the slower cars (which usually speed-up in this area)and need to go over the limit to do so. Skiers watch out!
This is a common trap to catch people coming off the hill from Sultan Basin as you travel south back towards Hwy 2. The cops usually hang at the bottom of the hill and it’s only posted 35. The hill is a pretty good grade down so you have to ride the brakes to maintain 35.
Cop sits on left side of road at top of hill in the Asplund Driveway. This is right at the crest of the hill headed westbound out of Startup. Position of shrubs, etc completely obscures police vehicle until you have past it. Police vehicles observed Mondays – Thursdays 5-7AM
They sit on both ends of town. Very high risk from friday night to sunday night for west bound traffic coming in to town. they sit on the right or left of the highway just as the hiway takes a slight turn and drops into town. Signs are posted and you will get a ticket if you go 5 mph over speed limit
