Usually two to three motorcycles and one cruiser working together on the entire length of Richmond Parkway from I-580 to I-80. If you see one, the other isn’t far away. FYI – The ticket for 66mph is $210.00

A CHP will wait on one one the side streets a few car spaces back and sits and waits. The CHP waits in an area that the speed limit is not clearly marked. The speed limit changes from 35 to 30 when you get to the El Cerrito border. The CHP in my case was waiting just before the speed limit change and then stopped me just as I passed the sign. Which of course I was speeding but it was to me a technicality. I was not able to get the ticket dismissed. As of 10-8-03 he was still out there.

Richmond police tend to hide in the bushes just past the Beaches development during the afternoon rush hour and just out of sight beyond the Archstone Apartments during the morning rush hour. No one ever drives at the posted speed limit of 25 mph, because Marina Bay Parkway is a four-lane divided thoroughfare. Enforcement presence seems to be higher near the end of the month (quotas?). Guess they feel that this is a better use of police resources than preventing robbery, murder, arson and dog mauling that prevails in the other parts of this city.
