La Crescenta, California Speed Traps
Lowell is where a lot of us get off the freeway. Going up Lowell it is not that busy of a street. The first stop sign everyone rolls it, everyone gets ticketed for it.
1/2 way up canyon between LaTuna and Foothill blvd.
Pennsylvania Ave is a two-lane road in a residential neighborhood of La Crescenta that goes downhill with an unrealistic 30 mph speed limit. Due to the downgrade, no one drives 30.
La Crescenta Ave is a two-lane road in a residential neighborhood of La Crescenta that goes downhill with 30 mph speed limit. Due to the downgrade, no one drives 30. On a regular basis, CHP officers will be pointing radar guns at commuters and citing them. Generally they hide North of Orange Street.
Briggs Ave is a quiet two-lane road in a residential neighborhood of La Crescenta that goes downhill with 30 mph speed limit. Due to the downgrade, no one drives 30. Once in a few months (like clockwork), CHP offiders will be at down of the hill, pointing radar guns at morning commuters and citing them. Once, one motorcycle CHP officer was stopping multiple cars at the same time (stopping one, then while that cas is waiting, writing citation for another car already stopped and waiting and so on). This is a LA County Sheriff jurisdiction, at least a mile from the freeway. I realize that CHP technically also has jurisdiction in local streets too, but what the heck are they doing at least a mile away from the freeway? This is a blatant attempt to collect some money from the local residents. Notice that since CHP does the ticketing, the local LA County Sheriffs supposedly "has nothing to do with it". If they are really concerned about the safety, they should install a speedbump or two instead of ticketing the motorists. Of course, the speedbumps won’t generate any revenue.
