San Jose, California Speed Traps
When coming off Hwy 101 onto Blossom Hill rd coming down the overpass they sit at the bottom of the pass and scan your speed on top of pass. Be careful
In the mornings SJPD will sit in front of my office and pull over speeders all morning long. They must pull over 20 speeders a morning.
With the amount of bad road on Santa Teresa it appears the SJPD needs some funds to fix the road way. They have been running radar there off and on for a few weeks. Being a 4 lane road it is easy to get going a little to fast.
I live on Blossom Hill Road and see this all the time. This information is up-to-date as of 9/29/2010. Note – this is mostly for morning commute traffic – but I have also seen them throughout the day as well.
As you are travelling Westbound on BHR there are motorcycle police hiding behind a tree on the corner of Blossom Hill Road and Del Oro Drive. The police are using LIDAR, and they they are targeting drivers leaving the traffic signal at Harwood, a few blocks East of their location.
When you come up to Del Oro Drive, a police officer walks out into BHR, flags you over and one of many police officers waiting there will write you a ticket.
The speed limit on BHR is 35 MPH, but most people are easily travelling 40+ BHR is a major thoroughfare – so many people are travelling on it every work day morning.
They are there catching people all morning long. The solution – drive 35 the whole way.
I’m upset because the police are targetting people on their way to work – there are zero police officers on BHR on Friday and Saturday night when kids are racing down BHR at 70+ MPH in their riced out Honda’s.

If you are going down hill on Tully the speed limit is 35. Even though other surface streets are 40 to 45. You really have to ride those brakes hard as this is a very steep downhill.
