Napa, California Speed Traps
Radaring people going Eastbound on 3rd shortly before it turns into 4th st, Motorcycle cop sitting in parking lot on south side of street right across from Vals Liquor. I live in the neighbourhood and have NEVER seen this area patrolled, speed limit is either 25 or 30 not sure which, but fairly easy to get going 35+ down this street. Local residents are likely being targeted since tourists generally drive down 2nd.
At night police will park somewhere on school grounds either in the parking lot up top or down below and will observe and pull people over going too fast, usually cant see unless you look very closely under the cover of night speed limit here is 35 then switches to 40, people are usually going 45-50 in this area.
The speed trap is set Southboud Hwy 29 1/4 mile South of Imola on ramp to Hwy 29. Traffic passes over the Imola overcrossing and the CHP radars from the West side of the road, in the bushes, as vehicles descend the overcrossing, very easy to pick up speed. By the time you identify the CHP on the right side it is too late. Slow down North of Imola.
This is intersection does not have a stop sign going north/south bound on Randolph, so police watch and radar cars speeding through intersection. Speed limit is 25MPS but people often go 30-40+
Heading North on 29, as you descend from the Southern Crossing, the highway makes a slow turn to the right about 3/4 mile from the stop light. There is a grouping of trees on the right hand side that CHP likes to use for cover. As you make the turn, you’ll often find them sitting on the shoulder. Hint: as you’re coming down the bridge, look ahead to that same spot – you can easily see them since there are no obstructions to the sight line.
