Lower Lake, California Speed Traps
Police sit on either side of the road, in large pullouts. The southbound lane is under a tress grove. The north bound lane is wide and they can hug the mountain.
The CHP sit just behind the mountain turn. This is in the middle 1 of 3 passing lanes in the county with many slow drivers for the northbound lane, and down a long grade in the southbound lane. So people attempting to pass that 20mph under the speed limit driver (who in 30 yrs I’ve NEVER seen pulled over get ticketed and people going down the grade easily exceeding the speed limit even with cruise control get tickets.
They OFTEN sit on side roads, or in dark shady areas facing the junction of highway 29 and/or highway 53. BOTH roads have 55 to 45 signs and they frequently get people just before the speed goes up to 55 who speed up a little sooner.
