Martell, California Speed Traps
They often sit in front of at Jon’s Pit Stop ans wait for speeders to come up from Jackson.
Amador County Sheriffs Department is sitting in a lot watching the 4 way stop sign (the only one on California Route 49 in town) on the right side just before the 4 way stop, going North its the next intersection when you pass safeway and just before the Junction of 49 and 88, going South its the first intersection when you exit off of California State Route 88, when you go through the intersection the lot will be in the left side going South. They are watching for speed, and checking to see if you make a full stop at the intersection, and cell phone usage while driving, among other things as well. Going south watch your speed while going down the hill before the intersection.
Be careful when going through the area, CHP are always there waiting for you, very aggressive.Seen 7 cars pulled over in 2 weeks .
Chippys sit behind brick walls in shade of trees at top of hill. Road is straigt, and narrows from 2 lanes in both directions to 1. Forget trying to pass at end of 2 lanes, you’ll get nailed, reasoning doesn’t work.
