Police sit at several places on Hwy 150 (John Hawkins Pkwy) between the YMCA – Shell Station at the intersection of Shades Crest Road and South Shades Crest Road and the Target Shopping Center. Hide in the shopping center at Jubilee Joes, AlaCare, and just across the entrance to AlaCare. Also, there are several times the motorcycle officers have been seen in these spots. Never go over 45 mph in this area.

Speed Limit posted at 35 in this section. Sight distance is good and the speed limit is obviously not set according to the 85th percentile speed. Hoover motorscouts were there on Sunday writing tickets. Very light traffic and an easy place to write tickets due to the unreasonably low speed limit in this section. I have over 40 years experience as an urban traffic engineer and feel qualified to comment on this improper traffic control. I would suspect that this speed limit was suggested by the Ross Bridge developer using political connections rather than traffic engineering studies. No, I have not received a speeding ticket here or anywhere else for that matter.

Hoover cop sits at the stop sign on any of these roads but I believe the main road is Oak Lane and it is full of large bushes and trees so you can’t see him until you are right on him. I see him there consistently anywhere between 7 and 8 pm.
