Los Altos, California Speed Traps
Driving north on Foothill, just before reaching Magdalena Ave. is a Los Altos fire station at 765 Fremont Ave., which is a frontage road running parallel to Foothill. There is often a motorcycle cop sitting by the fire station which is out of view of traffic on Foothill because there is a fence and shrubbery between the two roads. After zapping cars with his radar gun, he then has the convenience to drive out of the frontage road using the fire-station-only exit onto Foothill Expressway.
This is a 3-way stop. Cop hides and tickets for California stops. Ticket fee is $244.00. Ticket pay line is very long at court house. Officer that ticketed me approached my car with hand on his weapon.
I was pulled over by a motorcycle cop hiding in a bush, impossible to see him until you are driving past him. he said i was going 65 when i was going 55. also pulled over 3 other cars at the same time. it was about 15 feet away from the main st. light to downtown los altos. $400 ticket.
Santa Clara County Sherrif sits down a residential drive way waiting for cars to run the stop signs there. Three way stop.
A cop (usually on a motorcycle) sits in the church parking lot off of Cristo Rey and catches people as they are going down the hill toward Foothill Blvd.
