Malibu, California Speed Traps
Cops hide on the side of the road right after you come out of a curve. There are both car cops and motorcycle cops. The speed limit is 50, but many people go 65 or higher. I see people pulled over almost every time I go over Kanan Rd. There are so many places for them to hide because it’s so curvy that I can’t really pick one specific hideout. What worries me the most is that the speed limit changes constantly–for some curves it says to go 35 when anyone should be able to drivev at least 45. Those signs to me are THE biggest speed traps and the many many cops on this road DO enforce them!
Heavy enforcement northbound and southbound on weekends and holidays when beaches are crowded and people crossing this 4 lane highway. Speed limit is 55 and strictly enforced by multiple officers at any one time. Watch for people crossing road and for cars pulling into traffic without warning.
This Malibu sheriff favorite happens as you are coming southbound on PCH. Typically you’ve been on PCH/HWY 1 for awhile at 60MPH+ and the speed limit drops quickly from I believe 50-55MPH to 35 or 40MPH as you enter town. To make matters worse the town starts right in the middle of a long downhill stretch where it is easy to have picked up even more speed than you probably already had. The sheriff sit on the hill halfway down or at the bottom with radar just waiting for you. Also this stretch all the way to Topanga is a very common area for the sheriffs to patrol using mobile radar ready to get you as the speed limits vary up and down.
