Pleasant Hill Road near Green Valley Drive

Lafayette, CaliforniaJun 08, 20070 Comments

This is one of the easiest stretches to speed on because you’re coming down a relatively sharp incline for a 45mph road, which soon changes to 35 mph. As you’re on your way down the hill, Green Valley Drive will be on your right hand side (there’s an intersection with stoplights), and the squad car waits just on the edge of Green Valley Drive so they can punch it as soon as you pass, it’s about halfway down the hill before you get to Springhill Rd so it’s easy for them to catch you. Just keep it your mph at 40 on your way down the hill, the speed limit changes to 35 anyway at the bottom.

State Highway 24 near Acalanes Road

Lafayette, CaliforniaJun 08, 20070 Comments

As you leave downtown lafayette area going West (past the BART station)on 24 you come down the hill on your way to the acalanes road exit. Just on the other side of the bridge on your right is an extra shoulder area with a bunch of trees next to it… The squad car usually hides behind the bridge railing and the trees in this shoulder area… beware, he has a solid stretch of shoulder to get up to speed and will catch up to you quickly, so keep your mph below 80 through here.

Pleasant Hill Road near Acalanes High School

As you get off Hwy 24 going North toward Acalanes High School on Pleasant Hill Road, you must be careful. The Lafayette regularly speed traps late at night, and ALWAYS on early weekend mornings. I got pulled over going 6 miles over at 7 am on a Sunday morning. The cop was unkind, since I had just moved to CA from Philadelphia and I still had a PA drivers license. I fought the ticket and won! I cross examined the cop, and the judge said "enough is enough". It was a bad ticket, misrepresented by the police officer.

At the T intersection where Windsor rd. end on Old Tunnel.rd a cop likes to hide on Windsor and check that people make a complete stop at the stop sign. If you are headed east bound on Old Tunnel at night the area is completly black making it imposible to see if there is a patrol car there or not.
