San Francisco, California Speed Traps
Heading northbound on Junipero Serra boulevard as you pass king drive intersection is a downhill. There is a cross street below a pedestrian bridge called Clay Ave. There’s usually a cop in an SUV or patrol car aiming radar at you. Speed limit is 50 mph but you’ll easily exceed that because of your forward momentum downhill. By the time you approach Clay Ave. at the bottom portion of the hill it may be too late when you see the marked unit. They don’t cut you any breaks here by lowering your speed vs. posted limit, on your ticket. Be careful. Another duckpond for SSF PD.
Local PD radars cars coming downhill on Eastbound Westborough Boulevard. Usually on a motorbike, he’s often parked on someone’s driveway facing west or on Olympic drive. Posted speed limits are 35mph. This is a duckpond. Cop has a field day here. Just points and shoots.
Motorcycle police sit several yards east of the intersection on Waller Street waiting for people who run the stop sign. Moral of the story: Stop at the stop sign.
Police hides on Vale Avenue, north of Sloat, waiting for speeders west bound on Sloat. Vale is about five blocks east of the shopping center.
Motorcycle cops wait on both sides of Van Ness Avenue @ Broadway. I’ve seen them pull people over for being in the crosswalk when they are backed up in heavy traffic. Also great spot to catch unregistered cars or missing tail lights. Very sad to watch when we have so much crime in the city.
