Burbank, California Speed Traps

Burbank’s finest motor officers are in the drive wave of the library situated in Foyd Park or in the Utility Yard at the begining of Foyd Park. The motor officers are targeting west bound traffic speeding to make the light at Hollywood way.
Motorcycle officers sit in the Jehovah’s Witnesses parking lot
located at 2820 Burbank Blvd. There are very few stop signs or lights for over 2 miles so most people use this street as a quick route through Burbank to the freeways.
1 to 2 motor cycle police usually park on south side of Vanowen Street across from railroad tracks and airport, under shade trees or in front of a large parked vehicle, or in a driveway. Radar gun is pointed at oncoming traffic. Speed limit is clearly posted as 40 mph going east and west. Most enforcement is for East going cars towards Buena Vista Street (Vanowen dead ends into Buena Vista). Police are located mostly between Buena Vista and Hollywood Way (Fry’s Electronics on SW corner of Hollywood Way). Sometimes the police work in pairs one clocking speed and the other going after the vehicle. Traffic going West on Vanowen is sometimes stopped, and cars are directed into commercial lots on the south side of the street as there is no shoulder on Vanowen, it just abuts the train tracks to the north. I see the marjority of the stops around 8 to 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, but never in the rain.
Motorcycle officer sits at corner of Lake and Magnolia next to power plant facing the bridge over I-5 freeway and zaps cars as they come over crest of bridge. You can’t see them until you have passed over bridge, but they get you before you see them.
