MM 118 on I-40 in California

Needles, CaliforniaNov 15, 20120 Comments

Cops hang out in the middle of the road behind 4 or 5 very large piles of dirt/gravel. Picking off people every single day. The stank doesn’t have to go very far to find fish, so be careful coming down the grade. 100% of the item they are pointed uphill looking at the folks coming downhill.

A steep 9% degree downhill slope I was passing 2 semi-trailers at approx. 9 pm CHP was hiding in bushes on passing lane side, no lights. They said I was doing 86 approx.
No proof needed there should be some accountability here. The proof of guilt is on them, also if some had to pull over for flat or bad accident waiting to happen very unsafe behavior

Rt. 40 Median about 9 miles West of Needles.

Just state troopers always hang there to catch drivers coasting down the grade… easy to increase speed because of long straight Safe grade.

Don’t know where the CHP was hiding. Said he clocked me at 93 MPH. I was in my rear view mirror every few seconds.
I have now heard from several people that Needles is a Speed Trap. Be Careful. It is the last chance the CHP has to get you before you enter Az. Cheers.

Anywhere from 11 miles west of Needles and to the city of Needles. There are many burms which the CHP hides behind, many times multiple vehicles, to catch speeding drivers coming down the mountain. It is very easy to bpick up speed without realizing it. I have been nailed twice there and have seen them there dozens of times, mostly in the early mornings or late afternoons.
