Los Angeles, California Speed Traps
Officer hides behind bushes on corner of Houston and 3rd and shoots radar at eastbound motorists heading east on 3rd st and then steps out from behind bush and motions you to pull over and issues you a ticket.
CHP Officer with radar on the shoulder of Roscoe On-Ramp. Traffic usually slows down to about 65-70mph.
Heading westbound on Adams Blvd. there is a M/C who waits in the drive way of a church (one with an Orange gate and fence) behind some trees and parked cars. This is a part of Adams that goes downhill, so traffic tends to speed up. Doesn’t matter if everyone is going the same speed, he’ll pull over whoever he feels like pulling over, doesn’t care if you were the one speeding or not.
Motorcycle officers in pairs wait between Chatsworth & Old Susana Pass Road as you go down hill. Speed limit is 45 but cars regularly do 50+.
Motorcycle officers hide in private driveways on the west side of Laurel Canyon, between Mulholland and Ventura Blvd. Some days there are only one or two officers, and other days there are five or six. It is easy to speed on Laurel Canyon, and that’s what they count on. Radar guns, and then a ticket, even early Sunday morning when you are headed to the bagel shop. Occasionally they also have one officer on the east side just about two blocks south of Ventura Blvd, to catch you as you speed up once you get past the officers dotting the private driveways on the west side of the boulevard, and you now think you are safe to speed. Beware.
