CHP usually radar traps from the Vista Point on 49 in the mornings, particularly Monday.

Parked sometimes at the turnout adjacent to it.

Many locals will flash you before the vista point

3 to 5 Highway Patrol units working together with radar. Sometimes one will hide in plain sight then another unit or two will be a mile or so down the road, catching those that thought it was safe to “roll”. This is also practiced on the move with 3 or 4 units in close succession. They also have zero tolerence days, where even just a mile or two over will get you a ticket. This is nothing more than a revenue generation tool as there are far less safe roads in the county. Please Note: Apparantly local custom is to flash oncoming civilian vehicles which indicates that you are approaching a parked radar unit.
