La Habra Heights, California Speed Traps
East Road, just past Papaya Drive and Valle Drive
white and blue metal, box-shaped, La Habra Heights logo
has speed limit sign and “your speed” with radar and camera
Southbound Harbor Blvd north of Whittier Blvd
Patrol car sits at intersection of Peppertree and North Harbor Blvd (Fullerton Road) with radar.
Occassionally a radar trailer will be set up for southbound traffic near one of the S-curves. You cannot see the trailer until you come around the corner, and the radar is instant-on K band. Cops are known to also hide around these corners to nab drivers taking the curves too fast.
Hacienda has a posted speed limit of 35, whereas the average speed of traffic in the survey was 42. Often, the traffic is going 45 or above. As the city always needs money, and would prefer to only have residents driving along the road, the speed limit is strictly enforced. There are four locations where they tend to hide, two in each direction. It is best to avoid speeding all the way from Whittier Blvd. to Colima, almost ten miles later.
Harbor Boulevard above Whittier Boulevard
If you are on Harbor going toward Whittier Boulevard, police often lurk near the bottom of the hill. The posted speed is 45, however cars often travel closer to 60 MPH.
