Recently observed motorcycle cop sitting in 7-11 parking lot shooting lidar gun at westbound traffic coming into Duarte where the posted speed limit changes from 45 to 40 mph with a sign that is not easily seen or read. Traffic frequently travels in batches coming away from stoplights on Irwindale and sees higher than posted speeds across an open stretch. The cop can get hits before the 40 mph sign and he is difficult to see in the shade of a tree behind a small fence.

Police Hide at bottom/top of hill. The streets are extremely wide and posted well below the safe and prudent speed limit. Residents met with City Hall several times. City Hall refused to change speed limits. At the meetings was the local Sheriff Traffic Coordinator who was aware that the residents felt it was a speed trap, so the consensus was that portable speed indicators for drivers to observe and lines painted from the curb toward the middle of the stree would curtail divers speed over 25 miles. However, accountability for traffic tickets appears to cause Deputies to set up speed traps where citations can easily be obtained. In addition, the city has asked residents to hike taxes for street and lighting improvements, and the referendum was defeated. Citations are definitely one way for the city to acquire revenue.
