Long Beach, California Speed Traps
I usually see 3-5 motorcycles in the Lakewood Regional Medical Center parking lot, just before the old Albertson’s building. They are usually there on Thursdays, and I have seen them there at 4 in the afternoon, and then at 2 in the morning waiting for all the bar flies and drunks to leave the bar across the street. The posted speed is 35 until you hit Downey, where it goes to 40. They will nail drivers going in both directions, so be careful. My brother got popped for doing 38. These cops are RUTHLESS!
Coming down off bridge MOTO cop radars you from behind hedge 1/4 mile down the road tricky snake in the hedge!
You get off the 405 freeway at Studebaker going south there is a stop sign that is a long rolling lane that should just be a yield sign. A motorcycle cop sits back in a hdden spot and gives tickets for failure to complete your stop
This is in the alley behind CVS at Spring and Palo Verde. LBPD parks back far enough by the dumpsters so they can be seen. At least one of the officers drops his kid off for school there in a marked unit.
Southbound on Santa Fe when you pass Dominguez St it’s a 25mph zone in front of the Dominguez Middle School when kids are coming and going. The cops sit on one of the many small side streets on motorcycles and get people one after the other. I Always drive 25 through there when I’m going to work. I’ve watched quite a few people get mad and go zippin around me only to get a ticket. That’s what they get… No Speeding in a school zone! That’s what the freeway is for. 🙂
I’ve seen a couple people stopped on the northbound side, but not too many, mostly going south.
