Northbound on the 303 last night, I was gettin on it in celebration of the new mods I'd just completed on my car (heads, cam, intake, blah blah) and was passing a succession of slow moving traffic. The car got squirrely on a 2nd to 3rd shift as the tires broke loose. A car jumps out of the string I was passing....Maricopa County Sherriff! ...lights... traffic stop. The glass top was off the car and the officer approached from the passenger side. There on the passenger seat lay my XD .45(holstered). Calmly and politely, the officer says "Do me a favor? Since you've got your gun there keep your hands on the wheel." (they were already there). "Yes sir." says I. "Do you have ID? Is this car registered?" I chuckled a little and for a sec, the officer misunderstood, thought I was laughing at him. "Why are you laughing?" Inquired the officer. "Sorry, not laughing at you. I had a buddy get pulled over recently and his car wasn't registered. I remember giving him a hard time about forgetting to register it, then I almost did the same thing." "Do you have ID?" "Yessir." "Where is it?" "In the console, by my right elbow." "Go ahead and get it." I pull my DL out of my wallet and hand it to him. He looks it over and says: "Thanks, Steven. Do you have registration?" "Yes, it's in the armrest storage somewhere, I may have to dig." "OK go ahead, look for it." I get lucky and find it right away, hand it to him. "Steven, I have scraped lots of bodies off this road. You almost lost it going around those cars because of the torque." As I said, the back end got squirrely but I wasn't close to losing it. It wasn't a point worth debating so I kept quiet about it. "I understand. I was just testing some new mods and enjoying the results." "I get it, Steven. I have a buddy who owns a ZR1 and a 1000 horse Grand National" "No @#$%? 1000 horse? Must be that twin turbo I see now and then" Says I. "Look, if I didn't hear your story I'd say you were driving like an idiot. You were testing your car but there's better places for that. Test it out on Sun Valley Parkway or at the track." I was stunned(in a good way)to hear an officer say what he did about the Parkway. "Touche', sir. Good point." I say The officer hands me back my items and says, "Be careful." then drives off. I love AZ 2nd amendment interpretation and the LE here! The Deputy was a very decent fellow.

Must be the deputies then. I got busted last summer for 83mph (at least that what he got me at) on an open road with NO traffic, 65mph zone and beautiful clear day. He didn't even think twice about writing me a ticket. DPS

Sometimes it really pays to be honest and polite. As for Sun Valley Parkway, I think he meant, Sun Valley California! Hahahahaha j/k

Maybe he meant Sun ValleyPkwy in Wittmann off W. Bell Rd? Why, I don't know?

If you go all the way west on Bell Rd past Surprise it turns into Sun Valley Pkwy. It's a divided two lane each way roadway. There is nothing for miles and miles. There also is very little LE presence. If you go all the way around it ends up at I-10.

Don't buy it. Iv'e found DPS hiding in the median more than once on Sun Valley Parkway between where it heads due south to I-10 with my radar detector (V1). The C&%@??+&%*ER'S are worse here than any place I've ever driven in the US.

Didn't know it was SunValley Pkwy, but been up there a few times. Once, MANY years ago on my old '95 ZX-9R. Pushed her up to 160ish. :edward: That was fun. Been there a couple times in the vette too. I'm just not going to say how fast. :evil: Last time I took the vette up there, I made a run west with no blips on the detector. Hooked the Uie and on the way back it went off a couple times. Not blaringly bad, but fairly strong. :confused

I say you lucked out, only way it could have been better is if you were stopped by Lindsey Smith.

Why was this road created??

There are two communities on this road. Sun City Fiesta and I believe it's Verrado. It is also a great bypass from I-10 to the NW Valley.
