Beaumont, California Speed Traps
Highway Patrol car parked behind tree one mile east of frwy. entrance.
Watch your speed going on 1st Street up to the stop sign at Michigan. There is almost always a PD officer waiting on Michigan to make sure you stop all the way.
CHP crusier will sit in the turnout just after the last curve at the bottom of the hill.
Newly re-opened Oak Valley Parkway at the bottom of the hill at Oak Drive. The re-opened road leads to the 10 freeway and right by the Chevron station is prime hunting for Beaumont PD. Times are tough and the city needs revenue.
I/We are the CHP officers that work S/R 60 through the "Badlands" from I-10 to Gilman Springs. I/We want you to know where we "sit" with out Lidar units. This area of S/R 60 is posted for 65-mph. We usually don’t even think of stopping you unless you are at 80-mph or better (but sometimes we’ll take a 79 or 78), so giving you up to 14-mph over in a "maximum" speed zone is being more than fair. So, here are the Mile Post Markers we sit at; 29.50 (W/B west of Western Knolls); 29.00 (W/B between Western Knolls and Jack Rabbit Trail); 28.50 (W/B just east of Jack Rabbit Trail); 27.00 (W/B about one mile west of Jack Rabbit Trail); 26.50 (W/B E/O the "Summit"); 25.00 (W/B at the "Summit"); 24.00 (W/B about one mile W/O the "Summit). So these are all the hot spots, we want you to know we are here so you won’t drive like maniacs through this area, particularly W/B in the first curve to the right W/O the summit, just look at all the vehicle strikes in the center median there. Happy motoring! At least you know where to pay attention in the "Badlands"
