San Francisco, California Speed Traps
Once you exit the city through 19th ave South Bound be aware, Trainee cops sit. Possibly don’t use radars. I’ve seen many people being pulled over and i was also been pulled over in that area. Cops usually are not well trained especially on Motorcycle safety. Thats how i got out of a ticket.
Elk St. is a long steep hill with a stop sign at the bottom. Make sure you stop one SFPD officer takes pride in this being his own little duck pond.
The most heinous of locations is behind a wall on the immediate left entering the Presidio from Arguello St. These are Federal cops and they look for those running the stop sign directly at the gate. Another location is right before the intersection of Presidio Blvd. and Lombard Ave. turning right. These cops wait for motorists either before or after Simonds Loop and/or Sherman Rd., on the curve, just before the stop sign.
As you come downhill on 101 Southbound passing the exit for Candlestick/ 3Com park, Motorcycle officers routinely sit off to the right at the edge of the on-ramp waiting for victims. I don’t have a radar detector so I am unsure as to what they use, but I see them there pretty regularly in the afternoon and usually slow down while it is light out. They’re difficult to see until you’re almost perpindicular to them, so use the brakes in this easy-to-go-fast downhill section.
Both CHP and San Francisco police work this one at the base of the hill coming out of the Presidio Tunnel onto 19th Ave. Early morning pre-dawn they hide under cover of darkness working the radar and you cannot see them due to the tunnel abutments. It is clearly a trap.
