Pasadena, California Speed Traps
Motorcycle cop waits on Hampton Dr., looks for drivers traveling Southbound on Michillinda. Speed limit is 35 mph, but it’s very easy to safely travel 45-50 mph, downhill, especially if the traffic light to the north of the trap is green.
Cops hide behind the bushes and fences near the wash. This is a wide four-lane street, and although they are behind obstacles they claim their radar is right on. The speed limit is 35, but they write a higher safe speed on the ticket and write you up for faster.
Motorcycle cops catch downhill motorists S/B on Altadena Dr. heading towards New York Dr., then further south toward Washington Blvd. The limit varies from 30-35 MPH and it’s easy to lose track of your speed. They usually work in pairs with radar.
motorcycle officer(s) typically in driveways using instant on K band at N and S flow of traffic. 35 mph clearly posted. Average speed is 40 to 50 mph.
Between Del Mar Ave. and 210 Fwy. this area is very heavily patrolled by motorcycle officers during rush hours and lunch hour. Limit is 25MPH. Pickings are so easy that there’s never a need to use radar. I walk in the area during lunch and always see people getting tickets.
