North Mount Shasta Boulevard

He hides in plain sight in the old newspaper parking lot. Right in front of the 35 mph sign. Just before the KOA turn off. He gets north bound drivers as they exit the 25 mph zone and come around a blind corner that hides a white patrol car with radar.

I5 Southbound – just before, at or after the Audobon exit

Mount Shasta, CaliforniaFeb 18, 20120 Comments

2-3 miles North of Mount Shasta, Southbound traffic crests the Black Butte summit. 1.5 miles later, the Abrams Lake Road exit and overpass provide an on-ramp the CHP like and a brushy median to hide in – both 1/2 mile before and 1/2 mile after the Audobon overpass. Beware – the long, straight downhill stretch is often travelled at 75-85 mph by traffic flow. CHP won’t tolerate anything over 70 here (Limit is only 65 mph), so slow down and keep your radar detector on.

I-5, 0.5 miles north of the interchange with Highway 89

At the bottom of a steep downgrade on I-5 (both Northbound and Southbound), just 0.5-0.7 miles north of the state Highway 89 interchange. CHP park in the median hidden by brush from the southbound cars and by the overpass of a local street from northbound cars. Radar ON, they will cherry-pick any cars travelling over 70 mph (speed limit is 65 mph here). Both northbound and southbound traffic at risk, I see them here – and tickets being written – every day.

Interstate 5

The trap" really extends from Abrams to the south Mount Shasta ramp. CHP gets the north bound folks between the South Mount Shasta/89 interchange and the Lake St exit. "

Interstate 5 near Abrams Lake Road

The CHP sits hidden on the southbound ramp coming down from Abrams Lake Rd. targeting southbound I-5. It’s a straight downhill stretch after curves and climbing, so people tend to not notice how fast they are suddenly going.
