Chico, California Speed Traps
The speed limit is 50 mph then drops to 25 mph when nearing Durham at the ball park. There is generally a CHP officer parked just inside the park entrance Monday thru Friday in the early am, and early afternoon when school traffic is heaviest.
CHP and Sheriff’s like to sit on the side of the road on Bell. They pull off to the edge and are well hidden under a tree. This is also a great spot for them to get you because there is a curve on the east end of the road, so westbound traffic can be caught without even seeing the cop car. A lot of people drive fast down Alamo because it a somewhat country road but the speed limit is only 30mph.
just north of Chico the speed limit changes from 65 to 55 for about 3 miles CHP is waiting for you
25 mph. Watch for motercycle cop sitting by the Lindo Channel between North Ave. and Mariposa. Drive 25! 2:30 PM – 4 PM are hot times. (schools out = more traffic)
Eaton Road from Hwy 99 to Cohasset is 35mph, and at times heavily enforced. Most of the time City units will sit at the area around Burnap Ave.
