Sepulveda Boulevard near Rosecrans Avenue

Manhattan Beach, CaliforniaSep 24, 20070 Comments

Three times in one week during my lunch hour while driving south on Sepulveda just north of its intersection with Rosecrans Ave I observed a motorcycle cop pull motorists over for what I assume is speeding. I have witnessed this many other times. The problem is that these motorists are travelling as the same speed as the flow of traffic. Sepulveda is several lanes wide at this point and people tend to drive a good 10-15 mph over the limit here. Watch out! The cop usually sits on the west side of the road waiting to pick off the south-bound traffic. He sits in a gated off driveway.

500 Rosecrans Avenue near Highland Avenue

He was parked at 500 Rosecrans Ave facing EAST (Car), I was heading WEST on Rosecrans at 4:15 PM. Some how he can clock you with all the bushes, trees, and brush from the opposite side of the avenue (over 5 lanes [2 lanes West, center medium, 2 lanes East, than parking lane])

He pulls the truck in front of me and myself on Highland (mind you we were all driving with the flow of traffic)and tickets both of us. I asked to see the Lidar and he said, “He can’t take it out of the car with our him losing the speed and besides the last speed time was the trucks speed and not mine”. he said, “I clocked you first then locked on his speed, but I won’t write down how fast you go, I’ll just write it so you can go to traffic school”. As if he is doing me a favor, yeah right.

Motorcycle officer sits in front of El Pollo Loco Restaurant with laser gun pointed at Northbound traffic on Sepulveda. Location is on a steep downgrade, and posted speed limit is 35-mph, but everyone is usually doing 40+ mph. I was able to beat this ticket by writing "County Seat Requested" on my ticket and had the case transfered to Inglewood, CA court, and the officer did not appear!
