Chico, California Speed Traps
As you come into chico on 70 north just after the butte college exit there is a hill, you go over that hill and there is neal rd. Just after you get to the top of the hill there is this little curved out part in the hill side where the officer waits. As soon as you see him, hes already got you.
The CHP sits off of Hwy 99 as if you are heading North (to Chico) he sits right there by Neal Rd turn off but he is backed in so if your cruising down Hwy 99 you don’t see him until it’s to late. So slow down!
California Highway Patrol car sits below the Eaton Rd. bridge to catch people entering 99 going southbound into Chico. Since he is partly hidden from traffic coming up on his position, he might also get people whizzing by. Sometimes one sits in the dark along Hicks Lane or at the northbound Eaton offramp to catch people who roll through the stop at the bottom of the East side of the bridge.
(Chico, Butte County)
The local Chico California Police monitor this stretch of eastbound State Hwy 32 and use Radar that emits Ka Band on the Radar Detector. Again, the trap is between Humboldt Rd and Forest Ave on State Route 32. Got a ticket for doing 55mph in a 45mph zone (pre-radar detector). There are no schools and any public building along this part of the road to cause a hazard to the general public. The Chico PD hide in a grove of Cypress trees along side the road. Chico is a College town and a large part of the CPD’s income is from college students unfamilar with area.
Skyway traveling W/B from the Paradise area passing Chico City Limits sign. There will be a Chico Police car parked on the side of the road with radar. They try to get you locked in before you can lower your speed down from 55 MPH to 30 MPH once inside of Chico. They are using cars with no lightbars and motorcycles.
