Santa Ana, California Speed Traps
This a heavily enforced area near old farm operations offices… It seems as if heavy enforcement occurs on Monday thru Friday, usually 4 to 6 motorcycle officers park in Farm operations parking lot.
There is a motorcycle cop who hangs out in the parking lot of Barnes and Noble. He is alway looking for speeders and people who cross over the double-double lanes. He is usually hiding in the shade. He doesn’t give anyone a break either and has an attitude.
OC Metro Area – 2 HOT SPOTS – mainly Eastbound: 1) East of Bristol to Main the motorcops hide along the south sidestreet walls shooting radar. 2) Also, just west of Bear on the south side in the driveway of So Coast Shores.
On September 4, 2002 at ~3:50 PM, I was driving through the airport on Airport Way. A route I use to bypass the 405 traffic. As I was driving up the ramp I noticed a police car at the top of the hill right side. I don’t recall a posted speed limit, but I was clocked at 54 in a 35 mph zone. I am going to fight it cause I noticed 2 days after getting the ticket there was a speed checker, with newly posted speed signs in the same place where I got the ticket. Also while the policeman was writing the ticket several cars speeded past us. I know that nobody obeys the 35mph limit. its ridiculous. Does anyone know how to find out when a speed limit sign was posted?
Primarily motorcycle officer sits at south end of Centennial park,usually 4 pm and 7 pm (dusk to early evening), six lanes (3 each way with center divider) posted 35 people generally drive at least 50 through here, not uncommon for people to drive 60,65+ next block (closer to Costa Mesa posted speed increases to 40 and gradually works up to 45)
