Pacific Beach, California Speed Traps
On the south side of the street, two cops will be in the shade and under the trees, and one will step out with the radar gun. Speed limit is 25mph but it’s a long street and difficult to go that slow. I see them every couple of months….
When driving north or South on Cass, a motorcycle cop looking for people running through the stop sign.
On the Crown Point Drive ‘curve’ around the bay the speed limit is 30mph. There is generally a motorcycle cop on foot right before you get to the light that will pull you over by motioning with his hand. Humiliating–I’ve been caught twice at 40mph and 38mph (three years apart).
They are generally there for the morning commute.
Motorcycle cops are often ducking behind cars next to the Elementary School…Especially in the Morning. You won’t see them until you pass or they’re stepping out in the street to tell you to pull over. Watch for other motorists flashing their lights to warn you. Go 25, they will get you for going 26.
There are usually one or more motorcycle cops sitting on the south side of the street on Beryl under a tree in between Ingraham and Lamont. The place they sit is on a slight rise, so they see you before you see them. They can get you with radar either westbound or eastbound on Beryl. The speed limit right there is 25MPH, but no one ever goes that slow. Luckily, many people know about this and they will warn you by flashing their brights at you before you get to that spot. Keep your eyes open for the flashing lights folks- it saved me many times!
