Lassen, California Speed Traps
CHP waits at passing lane locations with radar. As soon as he clocks someone exceeding the speed limit (65 mph) he’s gotcha! This is how I got caught. He told me that I had exceeded the speed limit when I passed the semi-truck at the end of the passing lane. I travel the section of 395 between Reno and Susanville often and since I got this ticket I am aware of this pattern happening to other motorists. I have come to a conclusion that it is almost impossible to safely pass a truck going 55-60 mph without exeeding the 65mph speed limit.
