Okanagan Valley, British Columbia Speed Traps
All along Hwy 97, from Osoyoos to Vernon
All along Hwy 97, from Osoyoos to Vernon.. Especially just south of Vaseaux Lake between orchards, On the hill just north of Okanagan Falls, along the Penticton Channel Parkway just north of Skaha Ford/Knapps Nursery until you are cleear out of town along Okanagan lake. Another favorite is about 10 km (6 mi.) north of Penticton in Trout Creek, then another 10 km at the top of the Summerland hill. Peachland opposite the PeroCanada Plaza is notorious. Entering Westbank from the south there is a deep downhill, then uphill into the town itself. The RCMP love to set up their tripods there, flashing as fast as they can advance the film, and also pull cars by the dozen over for tickets just past the top of the hill. Leaving Vernon, travelling south, there is a long hill where they will park and take your picture. Overall, throughout the valley you have to keep your eyes constantly open for two hazards: deer and needless speed reductions out in the middle of open country. Police hide, or set up drab colored vans with photo-radar.
