San Diego, California Speed Traps
Pacific Beach Drive and Riviera Drive is a three way stop sign.
Two motorcycle cops will park on the west side of Riviera Dr around the curve and they stand at the corner of Riviera Dr. and Pacific Beach Dr. They stop cars as they approach Riviera on Pacific Beach Drive traveling east. It does not appear that all cars are speeding rather the drivers may not be wearing seat belts. The officers appear two or three times a month.
A cop on a motorcycle periodically sits a the corner of Del Mar Heights Rd and Carmel Canyon just out of view, so as you are driving west on Del Mar Hts Rd and going above the posted speed limit of 45 mph you can pass him or her by and never see them until it’s too late.
Two motorcycle cops usually work together and camp there on weekends. They stop their bikes on the south side of Felspar and watch for cars turning right onto Felspar from Pico. Many people roll through that stop sign. They’ll nab you with a CVC 22450(a) in a heartbeat.
CHP (cruiser or motorcycle) sit behind controller cabinet NB I-163 just past NB on-ramp from NB I-805 monitoring NB traffic with radar usually between 7am and 8am weekday mornings.
B/W unit "hawks" this intersection, any infractions? You’re nailed. Always seems to be a car there from around 3:30 to around 6:00 p.m. Have no idea where they park, seems to hide in Von’s or one of the fastfood parking lots.
