Newark, California Speed Traps
There is a camera at the intersection on Auto Mall. If you don’t stop completely at the red light before turning right onto Auto Mall you’ll get nailed like I did. $500 plus the cost and hassle of traffic school. It’s all about revenue generation, not public safety.
Between the toll plaza and the bridge, one mile plus, 3-lanes divided hwy with shoulder, looks like a freeway. CHP bushwacks travelers with radar guns as they accelerate from the toll plaza. Natural speed is 65 mph but limit is set at 55. Only one sign of ordinary size, easily unnoticed. CHP has one or two units (or more) most evenings between 4 and 8 PM. and some Sat and Sunday mornings. Easy pickins for them.
Between 1200 midnight and 100 am there is a patrol car sitting in the Home Depot parking lot driveway with all lights off waitng for you to come along speeding
