Fremont, California Speed Traps
On the westbound approach to the Dumbarton bridge after exiting the toll plaza, the CHP has found a nice place to sit while trolling for speeders. Approximately 2 miles after the toll plaza, just before the KGO radio towers, you can frequently see a CHP cruiser sitting well off to the right of CA-84 on an access road leading out onto an earthwall. By the time you’re close enough to notice the car parked there, it’s more than 30 degrees off to the right of your direction of travel.
If you’re focused on the traffic in front of and behind you, it’s easy to get tunnel vision and not even notice the CHP cruiser as you fly past his position. Keep those eyes open and moving, especially as you approach the KGO towers!
Motorcycle cops hustling on both sides. If you are on your way to the Fremont Bart Station slow down. The Speed limit is 35. They figure people are in a Rush to catch Bart and end up losing more than time.
Motorcycle cops cite anyone who tries to butt into the west bound Toll Plaza lane of cars.
The speed limit from Newark Blvd headed towards Deep Creak is a reasonable 45 MPH. However, at the top of the railroad bridge (and going DOWNHILL mind you), it changes to 35 mph. Motorcycle cops love to hide in the parking lot of the little strip mall on the right at the bottom of the hill and nab folks. I’m on that stretch of road evryday and I would say at least 80% of the cars remain going 45 mph.
There are 3 side streets on the Scott Creek. They will be on any of these streets randomly. They can be on your left or right handside. The street is pretty wide and straight so it is very easy to go beyond speed limit(40) especially when you are just off the highway. They will be there any time of day. I have seen them in AM rush hour, 9PM at night and Sunday Monday.
