El Segundo, California Speed Traps
Driving on a long stretch of road with no signals or stop signs is great! The speed limit is 40mph, but it’s very tempting to go faster, but don’t! The motor cops are barely visible and will come after you. Most motorists flash their brights as a warning. Resist speeding!
El Segundo Blvd from Main Street to Sepulveda. Motorcycle cops run radar while pulled into one of the refinery inlet streets. Usually early morning traffic is most heavily monitored
Heading east on El Segundo Blvd about 1/2 mile before you get to Sepulveda Blvd, there is a decline in the road that could cause you to accelerate due to gravity (without actually pressing the gas pedal any further). There is usually a motorcycle cop at the BOTTOM of the decline waiting to get you. Basically, you will not be ticketed for accelerating, you will be ticketted for failing to brake.
East bound on El Segundo, the Officer will be in the cut-out for Chevron Park at the bottom of the hill.
Southbound Sepulveda Blvd. between El Segundo Blvd. & Rosecrans. Motorcycle officer sits at truck entrance to Chevron refinery monitoring traffic. Speed limit is 45 but street is 6-7 lanes wide and no cross traffic. 60 is easy to do without it feeling excessive.
