Rosamond, California Speed Traps
OK, CHP waits at the bottom of the hills north of Rosamond. mostly on the North bound lanes between Dawn Rd. and Backus Rd. Mostly the white CHP car.
Willow Springs Rd (near cross street Champagne Ave), Kern County Sheriff likes to get southbound traffic with RADAR. Cruiser sits in parking lot for trucks that load crops. Trees hid cruiser until too late.
Rosamond Blvd west of the freeway. Mostly patrolled by Kern County Sheriff’s dept. These guys love writing tickets in the school zones and are infamous for writing whether or NOT "Children are Present." Speed limit of 45MPH when NO children are present, 25MPH when they are. Make the cop count and specify on the citation the number of children present and where they are. (but only if you’re in the right!) If none are present, you’ve already beat him. I did!
Local CHPs and County Officers will sit in wait at the High School for speeders moving down Rosamond Blvd. Sometimes using radar, sometimes just listening for overspirited drivers with loud exhaust systems. Speed limit here is 35mph although most motorists commonly travel 50+mph.
CHPs have been seen waiting at the corner of Rosamond Blvd. and Glendower St. at the AM/PM ARCO Station, clocking motorists coming off the northbound freeway. Care should be taken to reduce speed to the boulevard’s 35mph limit. Please decelerate on the ramp rather than on the freeway.
