San Jose, California Speed Traps
For two days now, there have been a handful of police officers handing speeding tickets out to drivers speeding the moment a driver comes up from the little dip under the I-880 overpass going west on Hedding St. They are using laser technology and handing out many tickets.
Heading west on Cropley, going over highway 680 towards N. Capital Ave. The police sit on the other side of the overpass with their radar guns. So if you’re speeding when you get to the top of the overpass, they’ve got you.
When going North/West on HWY 85 at underpass HWY 17, there a hill to thr right. Highway Patrol have an exclusive place on the hill hidden from all eyes. They watch the coming traffic going North on HWY 85 , and also cars exiting HWY 85 taking exit to go HWY 17 South. Mostly the patrol uses visual estimation and will go after cars that go faster than the rest of traffic, or if you spped on the exit ramp toward HWY17 south. Be carefull there. I saw them again today, looking for you.
CHP on motorcycle sits under the off ramp waiting for you. It is blind as you are coming around a long left hand turn. There is also one waiting up the hill in the pull off area.
Be careful, there are up to 7 traps some days.
