Crescent City, California Speed Traps
Northbound 101 approaching Crescent City, coming off the downhill from the "curvy" part. CHP park in the "shade" of large trees on the southbound side and catch drivers "freewheeling" off the downhill. Sometimes they will drive further south and park on the southbound side on the last wide spot on the downhill.
CHP will occasionally target this area and write tickets for anything and everything, including tinted windows and no seat belts, plus speeding. The speed limit is 50 mph, but feels like it should be 55.
Upon exiting the only tunnel on Hwy 199 between Crescent City, Ca. and Grants Pass, Oregon, the highway widens into 4 lanes and 65MPH. Shortly the road curves to eht left and narrows to two lanes and 55MPH. Before you have a real chance to slow to accomodate the decreased speed, a CHP has you in the radar.
The CHP watches Crescent Hill, both south and north bound, just south of Crescent City, CA.
Watch as your headed northbound here,, it is a somewaht steep hill and easy to gain speed as your are coming down the hill. long decline and perfect target for radar as there are no obstructions and curves to assist you in fighting ticket.
