Monterey, California Speed Traps
From the split at Foam St and Lighthouse Ave the speed limit changes from 35 MPH to 25 MPH. Montery PD patrols these streets during rush hour and very heavily from 9PM to 3 AM. This is in the Cannary Row area.
Everyone knows about this one, but incase: In the large turnout just before the old Fort Ord main enterance, on Highway 1 heading north. Cops there all the time. Also, both sides of the freeway on the 12th street exit.
Speed limit along Foam St is 25 MPH after coming off the Presidio curve which is 35. Cops love to watch during home bound rush hour and especially during the late evening and pre bar closing looking for any excuse to pull people over to check them out.
Fremont Ave headed into Monterey; usually Motorcycle cop will sit at entrance to cemetary after the top of the hill between first and second stoplights. People tend to speed here because they’ve just come off Highway 1 and it’s 3 lanes wide (narrows to two lanes just past where the cops like to wait).
The traps seem to be set up on weekends and the 2 motorcycle cops move them constantly all around the Defense Language School and Downtown Monterey. The roads leading out of the school are steep hills and the speed limit is only 25.They like to hide around the bend on Pacific Ave and catch you going down the hill.
