Irwindale, California Speed Traps
CHP heavily enforces speed limits in both directions of the 605 in this area. It’s pretty wide open, and traffic usually light, so it’s easy to get nabbed. Ka band radar, but lately some units seem to be laser gun equipped.
Went to court today, 6 other tickets that day on Irwindale by same officer. Posted at 35, way slow for the empty industrial area. TRAP!
The Speed limit is 40 MPH, however it is used as an alternate route by many commuters. There is often a motorcyle cop hiding behind a white wall next to the Verizon building with his radar gun.
Right at Merwin Elementary school at the Covina/Irwindale border the speed changes in the middle of the road…if you are headed west on Cypress you go from a 40 to a 35 MPH zone, east bound you go from a 35 to a 40 MPH zone. Irwindale PD is watching you
Irwindale Ave. south of the 210 freeway runs through sections of Iwindale/Arcadia/Irwindale. These sections are no more that 2 blocks long. The Arcadia speed limit is 40 mph, whilet he Irwindale sections are 30mph. The result is a road with alternating speed limits. Irwindale motorcycle police with Radar wait for violations of the 30 mph limit.
