Bollinger Road near Wunderlich Road

San Jose, CaliforniaJan 16, 20040 Comments

Going south on Bollinger, right before Lawrence Expressway there are two cops on bikes hidden on the right hand side behind bushes on Wunderlich street using Laser (LZ1) guns and pull the folks to the right hidden from view. They operate from 10:00am to 2:30pm Speed limit on Bollinger (4 lane rd) is amazingly only 35mph.

Bernal Road

San Jose, CaliforniaJun 13, 20030 Comments

Exiting 101 South on the Bernal Road exit just past the overpass for Monterey Highway at the corner of Bernal and San Ignacio. Posted speed limit is 40 but traffic frequently flows at approximately 45 to 50 mph. Radar is used at this location from the Jack in the Box parking lot. Drivers are unable to see the officer since he is obscured by bushes at this location. Come down the hill over 40 mph and it’s ticket time!

Lincoln Avenue

As you approach the shopping area of Lincoln Avenue in Willow Glen from either direction, the speed drops from 35 to 25mph, and I have seen many a lurking officer waiting to pull over a car that has not immediately slowed. Be careful!

Trimble and Orchard Parkway

Lots of contruction on this street. Contruction site called SJPD to enforce this area. They dropped the speed to 35 mph. There were FOUR cops on bikes on the corner of Orchard Parkway and Trimble. They hide in the shade with their radar guns. They probably issued over ~200 tickets this morning (6/5/03). Be very careful around this construction zone. Revenue generating for sure. I guess this what happens when the states messes up the budget, we all pay for it.

Camden Avenue between Coleman and Meridian

San Jose, CaliforniaJun 04, 20030 Comments

As you go over the large hill (either direction), be prepared to see a trap on the downslope. If going south/east towards Meridian, the cars will be either waiting on the side streets to the right or even out on the street itself, but around the bend which cannot be seen through trees in the median. When going north/west towards Coleman, the trap is located out on Camden itself on the flat area after the first hill/drop but before the last one. In either case they are waiting for people to gradually pick up speed going downhill, because it is easy and common.
