Camp Pendleton, California Speed Traps
CHP Motors sits on pull out as you leave Oceanside on weekends
A true speed trap, there are points designated on the road where someone with a stopwatch will monitor the time it takes you to reach the end of the road. They will then stop you at the gate and make you sign in. BTW, these are not police or military police. These are Area Guard Marines but there is an entry control point to the area (Edson Range). This is COMPLETELY illegal, but they won’t listen to me.
Watch your speed,especially if you’re not in the military. MP’s run radar all the time. If tagged, military has to see their commander while civilians have to appear in Federal Court in downtown San Diego. I was in a Minnesota plated car and after receiving my ticket the young Corporal, also from Minnesota, started asking me about Minnesota, how the Vikings were doing, etc. Needless to say I was not in the mood to talk. You should be OK as long as you watch you speed and don’t argue with the MP’s. They hate that! I really didn’t even think about having to watch my speed on the base which is HUGE. I have to say the Corporal who tagged me was very professional and treated me very well before giving me directions OFF the post. Oh well, I guess you live and learn.
