San Lorenzo, California Speed Traps
CHiP’s on bikes site on Hesperian Blvd. between Hasendia Ave. & Paseo Grande Street.
Many use this as a "commute shortcut avoiding 880." & they sit there all the time (especially mid-mornings) using Lidar/Radar catching people above 45mph in a 35mph zone. Watch out…
Police officers will park on the street like any normal car and they will actually get out of their cars with their radar or lidar detectors to clock your speed. Some officers driving cars will park off the curb a little bit just enough so that their car’s radar has a visual of your cars speed ahead of them. At the two stop signs down the street, cops will also check for rolling stops.
Cops like to park on the parking lot of Arroyo High School. They park near the exit driveway down at Grant & Channel. They can be found there morning, noon or night. People like to fly down Grant and they know that…. watch out!
Alameda County Sheriff Department makes this road very costly to motorists. It is a residential street, posted 25 MPH. I have been ticketed for 27 MPH. Have had 3 family members ticketed at 30-33 MPH.
CHP usually tags unsuspecting commuters headed to and from Hesperian Blvd. on this stretch of road. CHP BMW bikes and CHP cars running Ka band radar are very common and light up my Valentine One Radar Detector all day long. Police will set up stationary radar detectors randomly throughout San Lorenzo to show you your vehicle speed.
