San Bernardino, California Speed Traps
SBPD sitting behind bushes just west of CHP station stopping people for driving over 25 mph on street with no speed limit sign. Similar streets in area have 40 mph speed limits, so drivers naturally think that this street has the same limit, but they’re sadly mistaken. This speed trap has been going for several weeks now as of 8/1/2012, but only seems to be in place during 9-5 working hours.
San Bernardino Police are issuing citations for speeding along a four lane (divider exists in parts) highway. There is no posted speed limit. ITT Technical, Art school, and National University are nearby. I’m able to watch the activity from my office window. It appears the average traffic speed is between 35-40 mph. Because of the large number of stops per hour, I suspect the officer is citing for exceeding 25 mph.
NB 215 new connector ramp to WB 210 merges onto WB 210. At end of ramp is a guardrail perpendicular to traffic on wide shoulder where CHP unit sits with officer and radar gun. CHP vehicle difficult to spot until it’s too late. Very easy to speed coming off connector. Watch out!
There is usually a motor cop right before Baseline if your heading South. He maintains hold on one of the smaller streets to the right of the southbound side of the street. Turning out onto the road can be difficult with the oncoming traffic so make sure it’s clear so you’re not stepping on the accelerator so hard.
heading southbound on hwy 18 (going down the hill) the last turn before the final straight away to the stop light @ 40th. just as you pass the sierra way cut off, a motorcycle cop sits at the first street on the right gunning you as you come around the curve. the speed limit is 55. everyone seems to do about 60-65. so its easy pickings for the moto cop.
